CHEYENNE, Wyo. — In a recent court proceeding, Nolan Mclemore was handed a deferred sentence after pleading guilty to felony possession of methamphetamine, court records show. The decision came on April 1, with Judge Robin S. Cooley overseeing the case.

As part of a plea agreement, Mclemore will avoid jail time, with additional charges of possession with intent to deliver and possession of marijuana dismissed at sentencing. Mclemore’s sentence was deferred, contingent on the successful completion of three years of probation.

The case unfolded on May 21, 2022, when Laramie County Sheriff’s Deputy Parker responded to a 911 hang-up call on the 1400 block of South Greeley Highway. The situation escalated when Parker, along with Deputy Grover, encountered a disturbance involving Mclemore and two others.

Mclemore, identified during the encounter, exhibited signs of recent drug use, prompting a search. According to the affidavit of probable cause, Mclemore consented to the search, which revealed a pipe and a plastic bag containing a crystalline substance suspected to be methamphetamine, alongside a pipe with marijuana residue.

The substance, later tested and confirmed as methamphetamine, weighed approximately 24.1 grams, including packaging.
