21-year-old Sheridan resident Trevor Dunham had his Initial Appearance in Sheridan County Circuit Court Thursday. Dunham is charged with two Felonies; Possession of a Controlled Substance With Intent to Deliver - Cocaine; and Possession of a Controlled Substance With Intent to Deliver - Heroin. He also has been charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance With Intent to Deliver - Marijuana.
Dunham's attorney, Ryan Healy, requested that his client be allowed to furlough into treatment. Circuit Court Judge John Sampson said that while he didn't object to Healy's request, he stated that it's an issue that needs to be handled at a later time as the court proceedings move forward.
Dunham will have his Preliminary Hearing in Circuit Court in the near future; at that time, Judge Sampson will determine if there's enough evidence to bind the case over to District Court.
Charging documents indicate that Dunham and his girlfriend, 18-year-old Aline McWilliams, were arrested this past Monday during a traffic stop on Interstate 90 in Sheridan County. The stop was made due to the fact that surveillance and information obtained by law enforcement placed Dunham in Denver, Colorado purchasing drugs for distribution.
A search of the vehicle resulted in the seizure of an ounce and a half of heroin, a half ounce of cocaine and a small amount of marijuana. The search also produced tin foil with burn tracks consistent with smoking heroin; a marijuana grinder and two marijuana pipes.
If convicted for the alleged crimes, Dunham faces up to 21 years in prison and fines of up to $21,000. His Preliminary Hearing in Circuit Court has not yet been set.
The Preliminary Hearing for McWilliams is scheduled for Thursday, May 5th at 3 pm.
