Three Avoid Prison During Sentencing In District Court

District Judge David Cybulski sentenced three people to sentences that that include fines and probation, but avoid prison as long as they stay out of trouble during law and motion proceedings in 15th District Court Wednesday, April 29.
Shelby Rider
Shelby Lynn Rider is the second person accused in the drugs by deception case that occurred at Roosevelt Medical Center in Culbertson in June.
Cybulski sentenced her to a five-year deferred imposition of sentence on a felony drug possession charge and six months deferred imposition of sentence on a misdemeanor charge of possession of drug paraphernalia. Other counts were dismissed under a plea agreement.
Rider and Jesse Gottschalk, both 22 and both from Algonac, Mich., and currently living in North Dakota, faced separate companion cases.
Both withdrew previously entered not guilty pleas and pleaded guilty to felony drug possession charges during recent months. Both admitted in court to allegations that they together attempted to obtain drugs from RMC on June 25, 2014 by making false claims.
Each had been free on $20,000 bond since August  and both have signed waivers of extradition.
Gottschalk received a similar deferred imposition of sentencing when Cybulski sentenced him Jan. 28.
Jodee Scott
Cybulski sentenced Jodee Rae Scott, 53, of Poplar to terms in the custody of the Montana Department of Corrections of one, 10 and five years, all to run concurrently, with all prison time suspended, and $13,500 in fines.
The sentence followed terms of a plea agreement where Scott pleaded guilty to misdemeanor fleeing from or eluding a peace officer, felony tampering with evidence and felony criminal possession of dangerous drugs.
The incident that led to the charges occurred in Culbertson April 4, 2013. She has been free on bond.
Cody Twomey
Cody Twomey, 20, of Culbertson received a seven-year sentence to the custody of the Montana DOC, all suspended, and a $10,000 fine.
Twomey withdrew previously entered not guilty pleas and pleaded guilty to criminal endangerment Sept. 10. The original charges were aggravated assault, assault with a weapon, criminal endangerment and being under the influence of an intoxicating substance by a person under 21, all stemming from an incident that occurred June 22 at a party spot southwest of Culbertson near the Missouri River that is known as “Twight’s Bottom.”
The Roosevelt County Sheriff’s Office reported that deputies responded to multiple 911 calls at about 3:30 a.m., reporting a male threatening others with a shotgun.
