A probation revocation hearing was held Thursday in 4th Judicial District Court in Sheridan for a convicted felon. Sheridan Media’s Ron Richter has the details.

Probation Revoked for Convicted Felon

On August 6, 2019, 43-year-old Nathan Schuerman was sentenced in District Court in Sheridan to three years of supervised probation and a deferred prosecution for the charge of felony strangulation of a household member and 90 days in jail for a misdemeanor domestic battery charge, suspended in favor of one-year of supervised probation. The probation for the misdemeanor was ordered to run concurrent to the probation that was part of the deferred sentence. On April 21, 2020, Sheridan County Attorney Dianna Bennett filed a motion to revoke Schuerman’s bond for being charged and convicted of numerous crimes in Crook and Campbell counties. Schuerman, at a hearing Thursday in District Court, admitted to violating terms of his probation. District Court Judge Darci Phillips revoked his probation and sentenced him to 5 to 10 years in prison for the strangulation charge and 90 days in jail for the domestic battery charge to run concurrent to the sentence for the felony strangulation charge. Both sentences will run concurrent to the prison sentence that Schuerman recently received for crimes in Crook and Campbell counties.

According to the information presented in court Thursday, on April 17, 2020, law enforcement in Moorcroft responded to a report of a domestic dispute in progress at a residence. Schuerman was non-compliant with officers and fled the scene in his vehicle at a high-rate of speed. Schuerman was later arrested in Campbell County after crashing his vehicle when he attempted to flee law enforcement in Gillette. He was charged with multiple felonies, including aggravated assault and battery and possession of a deadly weapon with unlawful intent. The crime spree resulted in Schuerman being sentenced to a total of 13 ½ to 15 years in prison for the multiple crimes he committed in Campbell and Crook counties on April 17.

  1. Whoever granted “supervised probation” for felony strangulation needs to retire from the judicial/prosecutorial system. That’s ridiculous!
