SHERIDAN — A 29-year-old man charged with one count of strangulation of a household member, a felony, was sentenced Feb. 14 in 4th Judicial District Court.

Authorities were called to the residence during a domestic dispute on Aug. 18, 2018, and Cody Knode-Porter was arrested and then held on a $10,000 cash-only bond.

On Dec. 18, 2018, Knode-Porter changed his plea to guilty.

A presentence investigation report indicated that Knode-Porter had a history of substance abuse and other criminal history.

While initially a no-contact order was put in place, the judge granted permission for limited contact by phone for 60 days.

Knode-Porter was sentenced to probation instead of a three- to five-year prison sentence per a plea agreement. He must complete both a substance abuse program and an anger/nonviolence program.

Knode-Porter was released Feb. 14.
