42-year-old Thomas Wyman changed his plea to Guilty on several counts in 4th Judicial District Court Tuesday. Per a plea agreement with the State, one of the seven counts was dismissed and two were amended to misdemeanor status.
The charges are: Counts 1, 2 and 3 – Delivery of a Controlled Substance, Marijuana, to a Minor, which are all felonies. Counts 4 and 5 were amended down to Misdemeanors and are both Child Endangerment charges; and Count 6 is Possession of a Controlled Substance, Marijuana, which is a misdemeanor. Count 7, Planting and Cultivating Marijuana, was dismissed.
Wyman plead guilty to providing marijuana to his two minor daughters and three of their friends, also minors, in the spring and summer of 2009 in Sheridan County. One of the minors had reported Wyman and his wife, Toni, to law enforcement. When DCI agents interviewed the kids, they admitted that they would go to the Wyman's to smoke pot, which he provided. They also admitted that they would sometimes bring their own.
Judge Fenn will conduct a pre-sentence investigation; sentencing has been set for January 13th, 2011 at 10:30 a.m. Judge Fenn continued Wyman's bond, and he was to report immediately to Probation and Parole to get the PSI underway.
