41-year-old Sheridan resident Thomas Wyman and his 41-year-old wife Toni Wyman made their initial appearance in Sheridan County Circuit Court Monday on a total of 10 different drug related charges. Thomas Wyman is charged with five counts of felony Possession with Intent to Deliver a Controlled Substance. Wyman is also charged with two misdemeanors, Possession of a Controlled substance, and Cultivation of Marijuana. Toni Wyman is charged with one felony count of Delivery of a Controlled Substance and one misdemeanor count of Possession of a Controlled Substance and one misdemeanor count of Cultivation of Marijuana.
Charging documents state that agents with the Division of Criminal Investigation became involved in investigating the couple in August of 2009 after receiving reports that the Wyman's had allegedly been selling marijuana to their teenage daughters underage friends. Based upon their investigation, DCI agents performed a search of the Wyman residence, where they seized marijuana, various drug paraphernalia, drug ledgers and a marijuana plant. After the search was completed, Thomas Wyman admitted to law enforcement that he had smoked and provided marijuana to his children and other minors. During the search, the mother, Toni Wyman admitted to smoking pot with one of her daughters in order to see how she acted while she was high, so she could tell when and if her daughter had been smoking marijuana.
The Wyman's plead Not Guilty to all of the charges against them. Circuit Court Judge John Sampson set a $5,000 cash bond for both defendants, and allowed 20% to be paid upon their release, which is essentially a $1,000 cash only bond. Each Felony Delivery of a Controlled Substance charge is punishable by imprisonment of not more than 20 years, a fine of not more than $10,000, or any combination of both. Each misdemeanor charge carries with it a sentence of not more than six months in jail, and up to a $1,000 fine, or any combination of both.
