A Sedalia man was in Saline Co. Court last Wednesday morning for his jury trial, but changed his plea at the last minute.

Jeremy Futscher, 33, was facing allegations of unlawful possession of a firearm, possession of a controlled substance, receiving stolen property and two traffic violations.

He was charged following his arrest in November of 2011 after a police search of his residence allegedly returned several stolen goods.

At the start of the trial Wednesday Futscher entered a guilty plea on one count of Unlawful Use of Drug Paraphernalia. The other charges were dropped.

Judge Keith Bail sentenced Futscher to a $250 fine and restitution for court costs. Futscher was given credit for time served in lieu of the fine.
