Judge imposes 3- to 5-year sentence on Dayne McCart for intimidating witness

Dayne McCart (Laramie County Sheriff's Office)

CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Laramie County District Court Judge Robin S. Cooley has sentenced Dayne McCart to three to five years in prison after he pleaded no contest to felony witness intimidation. The sentence was handed down on April 15.

The sentence follows a plea agreement that also dismissed related charges of felony voyeurism and another count of witness intimidation.

The judge recommended McCart for the youthful offender treatment program, informally known as Wyoming Boot Camp. Completion of this program could lead to a reduction of McCart’s sentence.

The case began when McCart was implicated in a September 2021 incident involving voyeurism. According to an affidavit by Detective Harper of the Cheyenne Police Department, McCart was accused of recording a 16-year-old using his bathroom.

During the investigation, the affidavit of probable cause states that McCart began harassing the individual, who accused him of filming her as well as her boyfriend, culminating in an assault on the boyfriend. During the assault, McCart mentioned the girlfriend telling the cops on him.

Following the assault, the accuser became less cooperative with law enforcement, highlighting the impact of McCart’s actions on the witness and the case’s progress.
