FALLS CITY – The deputy Richardson County attorney appealed to an 18-year-old drug offender Monday to consider his probation sentence as an opportunity for change.

Trey Carter, who turned 19 one day after sentencing, was ordered to an 18-month probation term for misdemeanor attempted possession on Nov.9.

At sentencing, prosecutor Samantha Scheitel said Carter has a previous probation and needs probation services still.

Scheitel: “He needs to take it seriously or the future won’t be so bright for him.”

As a term of his probation, Judge Julie Smith ordered Carter to obtain his GED.
