Elsasser sentenced on drug charges

POSTED February 15, 2017 11:27 a.m.

On Friday, Feb. 10, Codey Deon Elsasser appeared in Barton County District Court for sentencing following his earlier convictions for distribution or possession with the intent to distribute marijuana and a separate charge of possession of methamphetamine. He was sentenced to 15 months in the custody of the Kansas Secretary of Corrections. Following his release from prison, Elsasser will be placed on probation with an underlying sentence of 11 months.
The court sentenced Elsasser after considering the recommendations of attorneys. County Attorney Amy Mellor recommended Elsasser receive the standard sentence of four years and three months, determined by his pre-sentence investigation report, due to the severity of his crimes. Elsasser, through his attorney Kent Roth, requested that he be placed on probation.
The Barton County Sheriff’s Office investigated the case. Mellor prosecuted the case for the Barton County Attorney’s Office.
