SHERIDAN — A man convicted of selling marijuana in Sheridan could avoid a felony conviction if he can follow the terms of a deferred prosecution.
Hunter Myers, 19, was sentenced Thursday to one to five years of supervised probation. If he succeeds with probation, the felony conviction would not stay on his record.
Deputy County and Prosecuting Attorney Darci Phillips and defense attorney Stacy Kirven both painted a picture of Myers as an intelligent man who got caught up with the wrong crowd. He is a volunteer firefighter with a full-time job, they said.
Judge John Fenn ordered Myers complete drug court and live a law-abiding life while on probation.
