CASPER, Wyo. — A Casper man who was convicted of beating a woman with a hammer in 2009 faces three months in jail after failing a drug test.
Peter Potter was convicted in 2009 of aggravated assault. Prosecutors charged that he beat a woman with a hammer and kicked her with steel-toed boots. He received two suspended sentences and was ordered to serve five years of probation.
The Natrona County District Attorney's office petitioned to revoke Potter's probation after he tested positive for methamphetamine in late August.
The Casper Star-Tribune reports that District Judge Catherine Wilking on Monday agreed to a joint recommendation from prosecutors and the defense that Potter receive a sentence of up to two and one-half years with all but 90 days suspended.
