Meth plea results in six-year sentence at 30% | Local News

A 2021 investigation into the theft of an Airstream motorhome that led to a felony methamphetamine possession resulted in a guilty plea to the methamphetamine charge and a six-year sentence.

David Luis Noguera, 29, who lived at an address in Timothy Dr. in the Breckenridge Lake Subdivision at the time of his arrest, was initially charged with possession of more than 0.5 grams of methamphetamine with intent to sell and /or deliver, theft of property over $2,500 and illegal removal of a sticker/license plate.

The charges stem from the August 2, 2021 theft of the trailer and the removal of the license plate sticker. During the investigation by Sheriff’s Deputy Ben Griffin, a large amount of methamphetamine was found in Noguera’s possession.

On May 13, Noguera pleaded guilty to an information charging with attempted possession of a Schedule II drug (meth) for sale and received the six-year sentence to be served at 30% as a Level 1 offender. .

Noguera was also ordered to pay $350 in restitution. The remaining charges were dropped.

In other cases on trial, the following guilty pleas were entered:

•Taylor Lee Denny, 26, pleaded guilty to aggravated assault in which a firearm was discharged on January 18 and qualified for diversion. The guilty plea was quashed for a probationary period of three years. The firearm was confiscated and Denny is prohibited from contact with the victim. Court fees were waived. At the end of the probationary period, if all probationary conditions are met, Denny will be allowed to ask the court to remove the charge from his case. The victim agreed to the settlement of the case.

Court fees were waived. Restitution to one victim in the amount of $1,178 and the other of $229 are to be paid and Oldham is barred from contact with the victims.

The pleas are overturned and if Oldham successfully completes the bends and terms of probation, he will be allowed, as part of a diversion, to ask the court to drop the charges from his case. A charge of public intoxication was dropped.
