Arraignment Held for Man That Attempted to Bring Drugs Into Detention Center

An arraignment hearing was held in Fourth Judicial District Court in Sheridan Tuesday for 31-year-old Cody Knode-Porter, who was arrested and charged on January 11, for attempting to take drugs into the Sheridan County Detention Center. Knode-Porter pleaded “not guilty” to the charge of Felony Taking a Controlled Substance Into Jail- Methamphetamine.

District Court Judge John Fenn set the three day trial to begin on June 28 and scheduled the pretrial conference for May 20 at 11 am. Last month, Knode-Porter had his probation revoked for several failed drug tests through Sheridan County Probation and Parole. Knode-Porter was convicted of Felony Strangulation of a Household Member in February of 2019 and sentenced to 3 to 5 years in prison, suspended in lieu of a 181-day split sentence and three years of supervised probation. If convicted on the new charge of taking methamphetamine into jail, Knode-Porter faces up to three years in prison and a fine of up to $3,000.
