Alan Chorlton, Minot, sentenced to 2 years for delivery of methamphetamine

Alan Michael Chorlton, 35, Minot, was sentenced on Friday to 10 years in prison, with a requirement that he serve two years, and three years of probation for the Class B felony charge of selling 1/8 ounce of methamphetamine to a confidential informant working for the Ward County Narcotics Task Force on Aug. 16, 2017.

North Central District Court Judge Todd Cresap also ordered Chorlton to obtain a chemical dependency evaluation and to pay $1,650 in court costs. Chorlton will receive credit for three days already served in the Ward County Jail.

The charge was filed in January 2018. A jury trial had been scheduled in May 2020, postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and rescheduled for August 2020 and then again to October 2020. Chorlton then decided to change his plea to guilty on Oct. 30, 2020, and remained free pending sentencing.
