For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Wyoming

Brennon Scott, age 35, of Lander, Wyoming, was arraigned on Mar. 22 for possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine. Scott pleaded not guilty. A trial has been set for May 28, before Chief U.S. District Court Judge Scott W. Skavdahl.

Scott was detained at the request of the government and remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service. If convicted, Scott faces 5-40 years’ imprisonment with no less than four years of supervised release and up to a $5 million fine. A federal district court judge will determine any sentence after considering the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.

This crime is being investigated by the FBI and the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Timothy W. Gist.

An indictment merely contains allegations, and every defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.

Case No. 24-CR-00041
