Probation Violation Leads To Arrest [AUDIO]
A Rock Springs man who was convicted on a drug charge but given a chance to avoid serving time in prison may end up in prison after all. Sweetwater County Sheriff's Detective Dick Blust said Brandon Gene Clark pleaded guilty to a conspiracy to deliver a controlled substance charge in February.
Prison sentence suspended in lieu of probation:
"Brandon Gene Clark, age 27, was charged on July 20, 2010, with conspiracy to deliver a controlled substance, methamphetamine. He pleaded guilty to that charge in District Court in Green River on February 3, 2011, and was sentenced to 3 to 5 years in the Wyoming State Penitentiary, with the sentence suspended and Clark placed on three years of supervised probation."
Det. Blust says Clark never showed up at the Casper Reentry Center.
Never arrived at Casper:
"Clark failed to report to the Casper Reentry Center, which violated his probation, and a warrant was issued for his arrest. Deputy Sheriff Jason Mower, with the Sweetwater County Sheriff's Office, located Clark at a residence in Rock Springs and took him into custody on March 6."
Clark was in custody at the Sweetwater County Detention Center in Rock Springs on Friday.
