Delay given probation
A Wayland man pleaded guilty to a felony last week in relation to using pseudoephedrine as a precursor for making methamphetamine.
Anthony Wilson Delay, 37, entered his guilty plea on May 28, according to his court records. He pleaded guilty to sell, distribute, and/or make available pseudoephedrine with intent to use as a precursor, which is a Class B felony, and is punishable up to five years in prison.
As part of his plea agreement Delay was sentenced to three years’ probation, the court record said. The terms of his probation include registering within five days with the Department of Correctional Services Probation Offices and obtaining a substance abuse evaluation and undergoing the recommended treatment from the health care professionals or his probation officer.
According to Delay’s court record, he is also ordered to pay restitution of $600, $125 for a law enforcement initiative surcharge, court costs, and court appointed attorney fees.
In his court record the reasoning for this sentencing stated there was an the opportunity to rehabilitate Delay, and cited Delay’s previous record or lack of convictions and deferments, his employment circumstances, and the plea agreement.
Delay turned himself in July 2013, according to court records. He was originally charged with the possession of pseudoephedrine with the intent to manufacture methamphetamine, a class D felony.
