An arraignment hearing was held Thursday in Fourth Judicial District Court for a Sheridan man involved in distributing methamphetamine and marijuana in Sheridan. Sheridan Media’s Ron Richter has the details.

50-year-old Emmett Shepherd of Sheridan was arrested in late May following a lengthy investigation by the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation Northeast Enforcement Team, the Sheridan County Sheriff’s Office, the Sheridan Police Department and the Wyoming Highway Patrol, into a group of individuals involved in the alleged distribution of methamphetamine and marijuana in the Sheridan area.

Shepherd, at the arraignment, pleaded “not guilty” to three counts of Delivery of a Controlled Substance- Methamphetamine, one count of Conspiracy to Deliver a Controlled Substance- Methamphetamine, and one count of Conspiracy to Deliver a Controlled Substance- Marijuana. District Court Judge John Fenn scheduled a pretrial conference for October 8 at 11:30 am and set the date of the 3-day #6 stack trial for Monday, November 4. If convicted on all counts, Shepherd faces up to 90 years in prison and fines of up to $110,000.
