In 4th Judicial District Court Thursday, 42-year-old Thomas Wyman was sentenced. Wyman had changed his plea to Guilty on several counts in 4th Judicial District Court in November. Per a plea agreement with the State, one of the seven counts was dismissed and two were amended to misdemeanor status.
On Counts 1, 2 and 3, Delivery of a Controlled Substance – Marijuana – to a Minor, Wyman was sentenced to 3 to 5 years, suspended, in lieu of a 90-day split jail sentence. The three counts are to run concurrently. He was also sentenced to five years supervised probation.
On Counts 4 and 5, Misdemeanor Child Endangerment, Wyman was sentenced to 180 days in jail, running concurrently to each other and with Counts 1 through 3, suspended, with all but 90 days in jail to run concurrently to Counts 1 through 3.
On Count 6, Misdemeanor Possession, Wyman was sentenced to 180 days, suspended with all but 90 days in jail to run concurrently to all other counts, along with five years supervised probation.
Per the plea agreement, Count 7, Cultivating Marijuana, was dismissed.
Judge Fenn reluctantly allowed Wyman's 90-day sentence to be approved for work release, as he is the only certified mechanic at Fremont Motors who can work on any of the recalled Toyota cars. With his employer and customers in mind, Judge Fenn told Wyman's attorney, Ryan Healy, he'd allow it, but it would be up to Sheriff Hofmeier to approve the work release. To Wyman, Judge Fenn said, “Don't prove me wrong.”
Wyman admitted that what he'd done was incredibly stupid and wrong. He told the court, “I let a lot of people down – my family, my employer and the community and I'm very sorry.”
Wyman has been clean for the past 18 months, and his daughters, who'd also been using marijuana, are both clean.
