Plattsmouth man arrested in same day sentenced but the two incidents are not related.
27-year-old Cody Cartmill was given a 1-year to 2-year sentence in the Nebraska Department of Corrections for meth possession, a Class IV Felony.
The Cassgram reports that In handing down the sentence, Cass County District Court Judge Randall Rehmeier said Cartmill was not a suitable candidate for probation because of his “extensive record” that included drug, burglary, theft and firearm convictions.
Cartmill had been living in Plattsmouth after moving from Douglas County. Court documents list him with a Lincoln address.
In arguing for a jail sentence, Deputy Cass County Attorney Richard Fedde said Cartmill “has a problem with staying out of trouble.” Fedde noted Cartmill had been arrested (on a misdemeanor) two days after being released from jail in June and had just been arrested the day of the court hearing (Monday). Plattsmouth Police records show Cartmill was booked on suspicion of third degree assault (misdemeanor) just a few hours before the sentencing in district court on Monday.
With credit for time already served, Cartmill will be eligible for release in about four months. The other cases are pending.
