Julie Cox was scheduled to be arraigned in 4th Judicial District Court Thursday morning on Felony Possession and DUI charges, but her attorney, Public Defender Ryan Healy, made a motion for Cox to have a competency evaluation done through the Wyoming State Hospital.

Cox is to arrange to either meet with a hospital representative in Sheridan County, or to make an appointment to travel to Evanston.

Next to be arraigned Thursday morning was 23-year-old Amber Williams, represented by Sheridan attorney Vincent Schutte. The State, represented by Deputy County Attorney Dianna Bennett, alleges Williams of two Felony Counts of Delivery of a Controlled Substance.

Both allege that between November and December, 2010, Williams delivered Oxycontin and Hydrocodone to a Samantha Niles. Williams plead “not guilty” to both counts, and a tentative trial date has been set for late December, if a plea agreement is not reached.

If convicted, Williams faces a possibility of up to twenty years in prison, a fine of up to $25,000 or a combination of both.

And 18-year-old Dylan Todd, who just graduated from Sheridan High School this past May, was arraigned on one Felony Count of 2nd Degree Sexual Abuse of a Minor.

The State, also represented by Bennett, alleges that on December 12, 2010, Todd, who was then 17, unlawfully inflicted sexual intrusion upon a minor girl who was 13 at the time. Todd, who is represented by Sheridan attorney Stu Healy, plead “not guilty” to the charge, and a 3-day trial has been scheduled to begin December 20th.

If convicted, Todd faces a possibility of twenty years in prison, a fine of $10,000 or a combination of both.
