Guilty plea in crystal meth case

A 26-year-old Yorkton man has pleaded guilty to trafficking crystal meth.

Five people were arrested October 11 following a police investigation and the search of two vehicles and two residences in Yorkton. Anthony Mik Millham and Scott Kenneth Dobson were charged with trafficking. Three others face possession charges.

At a court appearance October 20, Millham admitted to selling the drug.

Sentencing was adjourned until November 17 to allow for the preparation of a pre-sentence report.

The previous day, co-accused Dobson was denied bail at a show cause hearing. Evidence from the hearing is subject to a publication ban. Dobson was remanded until his next appearance November 15.

On the books, methamphetamine trafficking carries the same penalties as dealing in any Schedule I substance, but there is some indication, because of personal and societal harm, that the courts are starting to treat meth as particularly serious.

In general, Court of Appeal guidelines range from 18 months to four years in prison for a first offence.
