The case against Sheridan Municipal Court Judge Stuart Healy has been settled. As part of a plea agreement, Healy has plead No Contest to the charge of Breach of Peace. In exchange for that plea, Special Prosecutor in the case, Bill Edelman out of Gillette, agreed to dismiss the Battery charge and place Healy on probation for one year.
The terms of the probation state that Healy shall violate no law; he shall report to the court every six months in writing regarding his compliance with the terms and condition of his probation; and he shall not leave the state without prior permission of the Court. The Court did authorize Healy to leave Wyoming for all lawful purposes. If Healy abides by the terms of probation for the one year, the Breach of Peace charge will also be dismissed.
The charges stem from an August 29th incident in 2009, when Healy confronted a group of teenagers that was milling about late at night near his home. One of the teens, Lane Terzieff, reported to officers that Healy had struck him in the back during the altercation. The teens also reported that Healy smelled of alcohol during the incident.
