Clear Lake teen given deferred judgment, probation on marijuana, gun charges

CLEAR LAKE — A Clear Lake teen who pleaded guilty after being accused of drug and gun crimes has been given a deferred judgment and probation.

18-year-old Kyan Muth was arrested in March after law enforcement said they searched his home and found him in possession of 10 THC vapor cartridges, a rifle, and drug paraphernalia. Muth at the time reportedly told officers he was a regular drug user and sold the THC cartridges for profit. THC is the primary psychoactive ingredient found in marijuana.

Muth as part of a plea agreement agreed to plead guilty to one count of intent to deliver marijuana, a Class D felony, as well as being a person ineligible to carry dangerous weapons, a serious misdemeanor. In exchange for the guilty pleas, prosecutors recommended deferred judgments on both counts with up to three years probation.

District Associate Judge Karen Kaufman Salic on Monday issued the deferred judgment but placed Muth on probation for a period of five years on the marijuana charge and two years on the weapon charge.
