Sheridan County Teen, Changes Plea, Sentenced in District Court

What was scheduled to be an arraignment hearing Tuesday in Fourth Judicial District, ended up being a change of plea hearing and subsequent sentencing. Pursuant to terms of a plea agreement reached with the State, 17-year-old David Blanchard pleaded “guilty” to a felony forgery charge and a misdemeanor theft charge. In January, Blanchard was arrested for forging a name on a stolen check and stealing approximately $80 worth of coins from a residence in Sheridan County.

District Court Judge John Fenn accepted the terms of the plea deal and sentenced Blanchard to three years of supervised probation and a deferred prosecution for the felony charge, and six-months of probation for the misdemeanor, which will run concurrent to the probationary term for the forgery charge. Blanchard must also pay $80 in restitution for the stolen coins.
