John Carlton Pleads Guilty To Reduced Charges In Shooting Case

John Carlton
Casper Police Dept.

A Mills man accused of shooting a man he suspected was dealing drugs to his stepson, has made a deal with prosecutors to lessen his charges.

John Carlton has pleaded guilty to one charge of reckless endangering and possession of a controlled substance.

Originally charged with felony aggravated assault and battery, investigators say Carlton got into a confrontation with the victim, an alleged drug dealer, at Highland Cemetery in April.

Carlton told police he was only trying to scare the victim, but the gun discharged when he hit the victim in the face with the weapon.

The victim suffered a gunshot wound to the shoulder and tried to walk to the hospital, but paramedics responded after he nearly passed out.

Carlton is free on forty-thousand dollars bond and will be sentenced at a later date.
