Former resident sentenced for second felony
News from Laramie Boomerang:

A former Laramie resident who lives in Arizona will spend the next six months in jail for committing his second felony by attempting to purchase a widescreen TV last year with a stolen credit card.

Patrick A. McNett, 25, formerly of 917 Arnold, was sentenced to four to eight years in prison for one felony count of unlawful use of a credit card.

The prison sentence was suspended, and McNett was ordered to serve 180 days in the Albany County Detention Center on a split sentence.

He also was ordered to enroll in an adult community corrections (ACC) re-entry program upon his release from jail followed by four years of supervised probation.

Unlawful use of a credit card is a felony when a person uses another’s credit card; the number of another’s credit card; a revoked, cancelled or expired credit card; or a falsified, mutilated or altered credit card to purchase goods or services valued at $ 1,000 or more.

Felony unlawful use of a credit card is punishable by imprisonment for up to 10 years, a fine of up to $ 10,000 or both.

When he was given a chance to speak, McNett said he wants to take responsibility for his actions.

“Because I was drunk, that doesn’t give me the right to go out and do what I did,” he said.
