Worth County Man Pleads Guilty to Marijuana Charges

A Worth County man, Dallas Monticue, pleaded guilty in Worth County Associate Circuit Court Monday to unlawful use of drug paraphernalia. Highway Patrol Officer Brad Maudlin filed an affidavit alleging that on May 14th (Saturday) at around 10:35, he observed Monticue in a Chrysler Sebring on Route F near Elk Street northeast of Sheridan traveling 75 miles per hour in a 55 mile per hour zone. Mr. Maudlin said in his affidavit that he detected an odor of marijuana, got consent from Monticue to search his vehicle, and found a marijuana grinder and a small amount of marijuana. Mr. Maudlin stated in his affidavit that Monticue admitted to possessing the grinder after being advised of his Miranda rights.

Under the terms of the plea agreement, Monticue must pay a $100 fine and enter a 12 month treatment program starting May 17th. He must also pay court costs of $114.50.
