In March of 2021, 20-year-old David Briscoe of Basin was arrested and charged with aggravated assault and battery for an incident that occurred in November of 2020 in a parking lot of a business on Coffeen Avenue in Sheridan where Briscoe threatened an individual’s life after he pulled up his shirt to reveal a firearm in his waistband. In February of 2022 at a change of plea hearing in Fourth Judicial District Court in Sheridan, Briscoe, pursuant to terms of a plea agreement reached with the State, pleaded guilty to an amended charge of reckless endangerment, a misdemeanor. Briscoe was sentenced to 365 days in jail with all but 60 days suspended and 60 days of credit for time served. He was also placed on one-year supervised probation.

A petition to revoke Briscoe’s probation was recently filed by the State alleging that he violated the terms of his probation when he was cited on January 16, 2023 for possession of a controlled substance in powder form and possession of a controlled substance in pill form. Briscoe also tested positive for methamphetamine on January 18 through a test administered by Sheridan County Probation and Parole. At a hearing Thursday in District Court, Briscoe admitted to the State’s allegations that he’d violated terms of his probation. District Court Judge Darci Phillips accepted the terms of the plea agreement reached with the State, and re-sentenced Briscoe to 365 days in jail, suspended in lieu of one-year of supervised probation. Briscoe was also ordered to complete a substance abuse evaluation and follow through with the recommendations from that evaluation.
