Austin man sentenced to jail time, supervised probation on drug sale, drug possession and theft charges in Mower County District Court

An Austin man who sold 0.233 grams of heroin to a confidential informant at a residence in the 300 block of 1st Street Southwest in Austin on November 29th, 2019 has been sentenced to supervised probation in Mower County District Court.

49-year old Tristan Douglas Deters was convicted and sentenced Wednesday to five years of supervised probation for a felony charge of 3rd degree drugs, sale of a narcotic.  A 33-month prison sentence was stayed for five years if Deters complies with the 16 different terms of his probation, and he first pleaded guilty to the charge on July 1st, 2021.  Two additional felony charges for 3rd degree drugs, sale of a narcotic in the case were dismissed with Deter’s guilty plea.  

Deters was also convicted and sentenced Wednesday to five years of supervised probation for a felony charge of 5th degree drug possession stemming from an incident on May 26th, 2021 where he was spotted in a vehicle by an Austin Police officer in the WalMart parking lot.  Knowing there was probable cause to arrest Deters for drug sales, the officer found approximately one gram of methamphetamine, a methamphetamine pipe, a THC vape pen, three narcotic pills, plus stolen items from WalMart totaling approximately $130 in Deters’ possession.  A 15-month prison sentence was stayed for five years if Deters complies with the terms of his probation, and he was also convicted and sentenced Wednesday to 61 days in jail on a misdemeanor theft charge. Deters was given credit for 61 days already served, and a petty misdemeanor charge for possession of drug paraphernalia in the case was dismissed with Deter’s guilty plea.

Deters first pleaded guilty to the two charges on July 1st, 2021.
