A Pratt man is awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty to two drug counts. Larry Elliott has pled guilty to one count of attempted possession of methamphetamine and one count of maliciously exposing a paroled or discharged person, said Pratt County Attorney Ken Van Blaricum.  

The count of maliciously exposing a paroled or discharged person, a misdemeanor, was for Elliott writing a letter to the employer of an informant in the case and telling the employer the informant had a drug record and had been in prison, Van Blaricum said.

Elliott’s sentencing is scheduled for Aug. 19.

Elliott was originally charged with selling methamphetamine within 1,000 feet of a school and no tax stamp. The original incident was Feb. 4, 2007, Van Blaricum said. 

According to the web site law.opkansas.org: maliciously exposing a paroled or discharged person is maliciously and willfully communicating or threatening to communicate to another any oral or written statement that any person has been charged with or convicted of a felony, with intent to interfere with the employment or business of the person so charged or convicted: Provided, that the above shall not apply to any person or organization who furnishes information about a person to another person or organization requesting the same.
