Judge John C. McClintock Jr., heard felony cases in Northeast District Court in Rugby on Tuesday.

Pamela Brewer, 38, of Selz, pleaded guilty to three misdemeanors and had a Class C felony charge of theft of property reduced.

Brewer pleaded guilty to three Class A misdemeanors including criminal facilitation (theft), hindering law enforcement and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Brewer was sentenced to concurring sentences of one year on each charge with all but 20 days suspended. The second two charges come with two years probation.

Andrew D. Johnson, 23, of Fargo, was sentenced to three years in jail for revoking probation on a 2012 conviction of Class C felony theft of property. Johnson had all but 22 months suspended with two years supervised probation to follow.

Melvin Luke Jeanotte II, 33, of Belcourt, was denied a request to reduce his sentence on a Class C felony charge of possession of a controlled substance, which he pleaded guilty to in 2013. The motion also was opposed by Pierce County State’s Attorney Galen Mack.

Jeanotte was last sentenced on Oct. 28 for revoking his probation and was sentenced to two years with credit of six months and 11 days for time served.

Joseph Samuel Greywind, 37, of Fort Totten, requested a court-appointed attorney as he faces a revocation of probation of a Class C felony conviction of possession of drug paraphernalia.

Erion Clarence Peltier, 39, of Rugby, was sentenced to one year and one day for revocation of probation of a Class C felony conviction of simple assault. All but 120 days were suspended and three years of supervised probation were ordered.

Donald J. Magnuson, 62, of Rugby, appeared Dec. 2 and pleaded guilty to a Class C felony charge of a prohibited act (obtaining controlled substances under false pretenses) and a Class A misdemeanor charge of providing false reports to law enforcement.

Magnuson received a deferred imposition of sentence and was ordered two years of supervised probation with a fine of $954. He will serve 25 days of a 90-day jail sentence for the misdemeanor. The remaining 65 days will be suspended for two years.
