Sheridan Woman Changes Plea on Drug Distribution Charge

A 61-year-old Sheridan woman recently changed her plea on a felony drug charge in Fourth Judicial District Court in Sheridan. Anneliese Panasenko pleaded “guilty” to the charge of Possession of a Controlled Substance With Intent to Deliver- Marijuana. The guilty plea was part of a plea agreement reached with the State that recommends the dismissal of a charge of Delivery of a Controlled Substance to a Minor- Marijuana. The plea deal also recommends a sentence of 3 to 5 years in prison, suspended in lieu of three years of supervised probation.

Panasenko was arrested and charged with the crimes last November after an investigation that resulted in her residence being searched by law enforcement that yielded marijuana that was packaged for distribution. District Court Judge John Fenn ordered that a presentence investigation be completed and set the sentencing date for June 24 at 9 am. Panasenko’s bond was continued under the same terms and conditions that were previously set in Circuit Court with the additional requirement that she report to the Probation and Parole office to notify them of her guilty plea and to begin the presentence investigation process.
