Dallas Judkins Sentenced For Stealing From School
One of two Casper teens charged with stealing equipment from a school will spend some time behind bars.
Eighteen year old Dallas Judkins was sentenced to 50 days in jail, after he pleaded guilty to one misdemeanor charge of property destruction.
After that, he will be given first time offender status, along with one-to-five years of probation, after he pleaded guilty to one felony charge of burglary.
Investigators with the Casper Police Department say in middle August, there were two separate break-ins and burglaries, at one of the new buildings at Natrona County High School.
A number of Ipad touch screen computer laptops and a projector screen were stolen.
Police later found that they had been pawned, and upon recovering and activating them, the ID on one of the computer’s showed 18-year old Justin Drinkwalter’s email address and another displayed his name.
The license plate of the vehicle that Drinkwalter was driving at the time the items were pawned, was recorded, and investigators also obtained video from the break-ins, which showed Drinkwalter, along with Judkins.
When questioned by officers, both Drinkwalter and Judkins confessed.
If Judkins completes his probation, the guilty conviction on the felony charge, will be cleared from his record.
Meanwhile, Drinkwalter has pleaded guilty to charges connected to this case, and is waiting to be sentenced.
