A man set to go to trial in September for Conspiracy to Deliver a Controlled Substance was arraigned in Fourth Judicial District Court in Sheridan Tuesday.

65-year-old Roger Black pleaded “not guilty” to the charge of Influencing, Intimidating, or Impeding Jurors, Witnesses and Officers. According to court documents, in April, Black allegedly sent a threatening letter to a State’s subpoenaed witness in the Conspiracy case against him. In the letter, Black threatened to have the witness's family members harmed if they didn’t move out of town immediately.

District Court Judge John Fenn set a pretrial conference for October 25 at 9:30 am and a trial date for November 26. The charge of Influencing, Intimidating, or Impeding Jurors, Witnesses and Officers, is a felony that carries with it a sentence of up to 10 years in prison and fine of up to $5,000, or any combination of both.
