A Dickinson man pleaded guilty Tuesday to a felony drug charge.

Dillon John Breen, 32, of Bowman, appeared before Judge Rhonda Ehlis in Stark County District Court.

Breen was charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, a Class B felony, and possession of drug paraphernalia, a Class C felony.

According to the criminal complaint, on Dec. 6, Breen "possessed approximately 90 small tabs of paper with LSD on them, which he intended to deliver."

He also had "cotton-like pieces of material with residue of methamphetamine and cocaine on them" with the intent to "introduce into the human body a controlled substance."


In North Dakota, a Class B felony carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in jail and a $20,000 fine, and a Class C felony carries a maximum sentence of five years in jail and a $10,000 fine.

Breen was sentenced to three years in jail for the possession charge.

The paraphernalia charge was dismissed.

Breen had his probation revoked on two Class A misdemeanor charges from February: possession controlled substance - meth, and ingesting controlled substance - other than marijuana.

Breen was sentenced to 360 days straight time. The charges will be served concurrently.

A separate charge of ingesting was dismissed as part of a revocation of probation hearing.

In July, Breen pleaded guilty to theft of property, a Class C felony. For the Bowman County charge, from Dec. 17, 2018, he was given three years supervised probation.

Breen wanted it noted Tuesday that he had "filed paperwork with the government and is a sovereign citizen."


Ehlis reminded Breen that it had been found the court had jurisdiction over him.
