Pretrial Conference Held for Sheridan Man Charged With Drug Distribution

A three-day jury trial remains scheduled for May 24 in Fourth Judicial District Court in Sheridan for Donald Brower, who is charged with two felonies for allegedly distributing drugs to a minor. Brower, at an arraignment hearing in November, pleaded “not guilty” to  the charges of Conspiracy to Deliver a Controlled Substance to a Minor- Marijuana, and Possession With Intent to Deliver a Controlled Substance to a Juvenile- Marijuana. The alleged crimes occurred between October 3rd and 4th of 2020.

During a pretrial conference in District Court Thursday, Sheridan County Attorney Dianna Bennett and Defense Attorney Travis Smith said negotiations for a plea agreement are continuing to take place. District Court Judge John Fenn said the jury trial will remain on the court docket as a #2 stack trial, behind a case that is being handled by Judge William Edelman. If convicted on both counts, Brower faces up to 20 years in prison and fines of up to $20,000.
