Lander man arraigned for possession of meth with intent to distribute


CASPER, Wyo. — Lander resident Brennon Scott, 35, of Lander was arraigned Mar. 22 for possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine. Scott pleaded not guilty, and a trial has been set for May 28.

Scott will appear before Chief U.S. District Court Judge Scott W. Skavdahl.

He was detained at the request of the government and remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service. If convicted, Scott faces five to 40 years’ imprisonment with no less than four years of supervised release and up to a $5 million fine. A federal district court judge will determine any sentence after considering the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.

This crime is being investigated by the FBI and the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Timothy W. Gist.

An indictment merely contains allegations, and every defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
