WORTHINGTON — Dillion Dubielczyk, 24, of Merrillan, Wisconsin, received discharge and dismissal Monday in a March 2019 case involving his traveling in a vehicle that contained a variety of marijuana products.
The sentence, ruled by Fifth Judicial District Judge Moore, means that if Dubielczyk abides by the terms of his three-year probation, he will not be convicted of a felony.
Moore described the case as Dubielczyk being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Although Dubielczyk had planned to return from California by airplane, he was roped into travelling with a group in car, and the four were subsequently arrested as they drove through Nobles County.
"You really don't get two bites of the apple," Moore told Dubielczyk. "You only get one break."
Moore warned Dubielczyk that if he violates his probation, he faces the possibility of returning to court and serving up to 12 months and a day in prison.
The 24-year-old was also ordered to pay a $1,000 fine, which will be covered by the surrendering of the $1,500 cash bail he posted when he was released from Nobles County Jail.
Because Dubielczyk lives in Wisconsin, he is allowed to report to a probation officer there. Nobles County will transfer the case to Jackson County, Wisconsin, after which Dubielczyk's probation will be unsupervised.
