Acting United States Attorney Bob Murray announced today that ADAM LEE GODWIN, age 35, of Sheridan, Wyoming was charged by indictment and arrested for being an unlawful user of a controlled substance in possession of a firearm and possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine.


Godwin appeared before Federal District Court Judge Nancy D. Freudenthal on October 12, 2021, for an arraignment hearing and pleaded not guilty to the charges.  Judge Freudenthal set a jury trial to be held in Cheyenne on December 13, 2021.  Godwin was remanded to the custody of the United States Marshals Service. These crimes carry a term of five to 40 years imprisonment, up to five years of supervised release, and over $5 million in fines and special assessments.


This crime was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and the Sheridan County Sheriff’s Office.  The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Jonathon C. Coppom.


An indictment merely contains allegations, and every defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
