Suspected Drug Dealer Changes Plea in District Court

A California man suspected of dealing drugs out of a motel in Sheridan in September of 2020 pleaded guilty to the charges at a change of plea hearing Tuesday in Fourth Judicial District Court in Sheridan. Pursuant to a plea agreement reached with the state, Kishan Sangha pleaded guilty to one count of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver – methamphetamine, and one count of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver – heroin. The prosecution is recommending a sentence of 5 to 8 years in prison for each of the charges and to run count two consecutive to the sentence for count one. The plea agreement is non-binding, meaning the court can reject the plea deal altogether at sentencing and the defendant cannot withdraw the guilty pleas.

District Court Judge Darci Phillips ordered that a presentence investigation be completed and scheduled sentencing for November 17 at 9 am. Sangha’s bond was revoked and he was remanded to the custody of the Sheridan County Detention Center to await sentencing. According to court documents, Sangha was arrested on September 23, 2020 when the Sheridan Police Department received a report of potential drug sales at a residence in Sheridan. During the investigation, a male subject from California was identified as a supplier of methamphetamine from a local motel. A search warrant on Sangha’s motel room resulted in the seizure of methamphetamine and heroin.
