Sheridan Man Changes Plea on Delivery Charges

Kieran Cowan, 27-year-old Sheridan resident, changed his plea to “guilty” on various drug delivery charges and and admitted that he’d violated terms of his probation, during a Change of Plea hearing Thursday in Fourth Judicial District Court in Sheridan.

Cowan admitted to violating his probation by consuming alcohol and and taking ritalin without a valid prescription. Per terms of a plea agreement with the State, Cowan pleaded guilty to two of the four counts of Delivery of a Controlled Substance that he was charged with in August. The plea agreement with the State calls for the other two charges to be dropped.

Cowan was arrested for selling the prescription drug Adderall on several different occasions this past summer. He told the Court Thursday that he was prescribed the medication by his doctor. Under the plea agreement, Cowan will receive 3 to 6 years in prison for each of the delivery charges, and 3 to 5 years for probation revocation. The sentences will all run concurrent to one another.

Judge Fenn reminded Cowan that the Court is by no means bound by the terms of the plea agreement and ordered that a presentence investigation be completed. Fenn set the sentencing date for December 21 at 10:30 am.
