DRUGS

ANDREW D. GREEN, 25, pleaded guilty Aug. 12 to possession of ketamine and driving while under the influence of a controlled substance. The possession charge had been reduced from possession with intent to deliver as part of a plea agreement in which prosecutors also dismissed defrauding a drug and alcohol test, and possession of marijuana, THC and psilocybin mushrooms, all misdemeanors. Attorneys will jointly recommend a suspended 2.5- to four-year sentence and three years of supervised probation on the possession charge and 180 days in jail for DUI with 30 to serve and the rest suspended and six months of probation to be served consecutively to other misdemeanor cases. Charges of operating without an interlock device, no insurance and driving with a suspended license also will be dismissed. Green was pulled over Oct. 14 in Antelope Valley after an off-duty deputy saw his vehicle swerving and almost causing a head-on collision south of town as it traveled into Gillette. A search of the vehicle turned up bags of ketamine packaged in similar weights and sizes, empty bags and paraphernalia, bags of marijuana and THC “shatter,” according to court documents.
