A change of plea hearing and subsequent sentencing was recently held for 66-year-old Richard Evans in Fourth Judicial District in Sheridan. Pursuant to terms of a plea agreement reached with the State, Evans pleaded guilty to the charge of felony possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver – methamphetamine. Two misdemeanor drug possession charges were dismissed as part of the plea deal.

District Court Judge Darci Phillips accepted the terms of the plea agreement and sentenced Evans to 4 to 7 years in prison and ordered him to pay $375 in various court costs and fees. Evans received 149 days of credit for time served. According to court documents, the arrest occurred on November 17, 2021 following a traffic stop where Evans was cited for driving under suspension. Evans was released after being cited for the DUS. During an inventory of the vehicle Evans was driving, officers with the SPD found morphine and marijuana. Soon after, Evans was located at a residence in Sheridan where he was arrested for being in possession of over 140 grams of methamphetamine as well as the drugs located in the vehicle.
