A 20-year-old Sheridan man changed his pleas on two felony drug charges at a hearing Thursday in Fourth Judicial District Court in Sheridan. Pursuant to terms of a plea agreement reached with the State, James Cossel pleaded guilty to the charges of delivery of a controlled substance – THC, and delivery of a controlled substance – LSD. The plea agreement recommends a sentence of 2 to 5 years in prison for the THC charge, and 3 to 5 years in prison for the LSD charge. The sentences would run concurrent to one another and would  be suspended in lieu of three years of supervised probation. District Court Judge

Darci Phillips set the sentencing date for June 16 at 9 am and continued Cossel’s bond under the same terms and conditions that were previously set in Circuit Court. Cossel was arrested and charged with the crimes for selling marijuana wax to a confidential informant in December of 2020, and selling LSD to the same confidential informant in January of 2021. The undercover drug purchases were part of an investigation by the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation.
