A trial date has been set for a Sheridan man charged with multiple crimes. Sheridan Media’s Ron Richter has the details.
An arraignment hearing was held Thursday in Fourth Judicial District Court in Sheridan for 27-year-old Walker McMillan who is charged with one felony and two misdemeanors for an incident that occurred on March 6 of this year. McMillan pleaded “not guilty” to the charges of Felony Aggravated Assault and Battery, Misdemeanor Reckless Endangering and Misdemeanor Domestic Battery.
District Court Judge John Fenn scheduled the two-day jury trial to begin on August 23 and set the date for the pretrial conference for July 29 at 11 am. McMillan’s bond was continued under the same terms and conditions that were previously set in Circuit Court. According to the affidavit of probable cause, McMillan was charged with the crimes in March for threatening to kill an individual while holding a knife to their throat, and then punching the man in the face. McMillan later fired a shotgun into the floor of a home in Sheridan County. If convicted on all three charges, McMillan faces up to 11 ½ years in prison and fines of up to $11,750.
