Cheyenne Man Gets Probation in Heroin Case, Pleads Guilty to Meth Charge
A 24-year-old Cheyenne man who was being sought on a bond revocation warrant has been sentenced to four years of probation for heroin possession.
Jacob Hutchins plead guilty to felony possession of heroin, driving while under suspension-subsequent conviction and failure to maintain insurance on Jan. 25 as part of a plea deal with prosecutors.
In exchange for his plea, possession with intent to deliver heroin and no valid registration charges were dropped.
Laramie County District Court Judge Catherine Rogers also ordered Hutchins to pay a $500 fine and complete residential treatment. If he violates the terms of his probation, Hutchins faces a suspended sentence of two to four years.
Hutchins also changed his plea in a separate case, admitting that he had a felony amount of meth on him when authorities arrested him on June 26.
Rogers delayed sentencing in that case so an updated presentence investigation report could be completed and reduced Hutchins' $4,000 cash bond to an OR bond.
