Hearings Take Place In District Court

District Court judge David J. Cybulski presided over several hearings in Wolf Point on Wednesday, Dec. 13.

The petition to revoke hearing for Wyatt Blaine Bergie Sr. was postponed until Jan. 10 after Bergie was stopped for suspicion of being under the influence of intoxicants in Sidney. Officials from the Richland County jail told the court that Bergie was tested and had a blood alcohol contest of .149.

Bergie originally received a five-year deferred sentence for aggravated assault. Maximum penalties for aggravated assault are 20 years in prison and a $50,000 fine.

Cybulski ordered that Bergie be held in Sidney without bail.

Vincent Benjamin Putman was also scheduled for a revocation hearing. Cybulski postponed the hearing until Jan. 20 to give Putman time to secure an attorney.

Putnam originally received a two-year deferred sentence for criminal possession of dangerous drugs.

Brandy Lynn Bowland received a six-month sentence, all suspended but 24 hours, for misdemeanor driving under the inlluence. Other charges were dismissed.

Corby VanWhy admitted to parole violations. He originally received a deferred sentence of three years for criminal endangerment. Maximum penalties are 10 years in prison and a $50,000 fine.

A probation officer recommended that VanWhy participates in in-patient treatment.

Cybulski ruled that he feels that VanWhy has the ability to follow the probation requirements. Cybulski kept the three-year deferred sentence and added that VanWhy must wear an ankle bracelet for alcohol monitoring. Cybulski asked that Van-Why register with treatment court.
