Man enters lesser plea in Basehor drug case

June 19, 2003

A Basehor man accused of selling drugs near a school pleaded guilty Wednesday, June 11, to lesser charges in Leavenworth County District Court.

Charles Fowler of Basehor pleaded guilty to amended counts of possession of methamphetamine, misdemeanor possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and no drug tax stamp.

He will be sentenced at 11:30 a.m. Monday July 7. Prosecutors said he would most likely receive probation.

The charges stemmed from a February 2002 search of his home on that yielded weapons, cash and drugs, authorities said.

Tom Lorance of Tonganoxie, who also was arrested, pleaded guilty to charges of misdemeanor possession of marijuana and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.
