GILLETTE, Wyo. — A 32-year-old Wyoming man has pleaded no contest to a charge that he provided methamphetamine to a 16-year-old and then watched him smoke it.
Jeremy W. Thomas of Gillette entered the plea this past week to a charge of distributing a narcotic to a person under 18.
The Gillette News Record reports (http://bit.ly/2voJ0b4 ) that under a plea agreement, prosecutors will recommend a 4- to 6-year prison sentence. Thomas will be allowed to argue for less.
Authorities say Thomas was arrested Feb. 26 after the grandmother of the 16-year-old boy called police because he had been in the shower for 20 minutes trying to wash “bugs” off his skin and mouth after returning from Thomas’ apartment.
