A Grand Island man caught trying to bring methamphetamine through the security gates of a Lincoln courthouse has been sentenced to four to six years in prison.
Richard Wittman attempted to run out the front door of the Hall of Justice on Nov. 2. That's after a security sergeant looked in Wittman's pack of cigarettes and saw a white powdery substance.
Wittman and the sergeant injured in a subsequent scuffle. Wittman pleaded no contest to attempted possession of meth and third-degree assault on an officer for the Nov. 2 incident.
Wittman had originally gone to court on an assault case stemming from an incident Oct. 12 in Lincoln. He pleaded no contest to attempted third-degree assault in that case.
