Troy Duane Hemen of East Helena has pleaded not guilty to four new charges after being convicted for forgery and possession of meth in October of 2014.
Hemen appeared in Lewis & Clark County District Court Wednesday and entered pleas of not guilty to possession of meth, possession of drug paraphernalia, driving while suspended, and lying to a police officer about his identity.
The charges stem from an arrest in December 2014, which follows suspended sentences he received in October 2014 for forging checks stolen from a local dental office and for drug possession.
In court documents his probation and parole officer says Hemen's adjustment to supervision has been "Abysmal."
The report also states that phone records obtained at his latest arrest indicated that Hemen was traveling between Helena and Butte engaged in drug transactions.
His trial scheduled for April 6.
(January 8, 2014) Troy Duane Hemen appeared in Lewis & Clark County District Court Wednesday on a petition to revoke two suspended sentences he received in October for forgery and possession of dangerous drugs.
The petition came about after Hemen was arrested again on new charges.
Hemen pleaded guilty to forgery in October for stealing a bank bag from a local dental office and forging $10,000 in checks. He was given a 25-year suspended sentence.
At that time, he also pleaded guilty to felony possession of meth.
Court documents say Hemen was then arrested in early November for failing to attend treatment court and again in December for felony possession of meth.
Court documents say Hemen also ingested the drug.
Hemen will be arraigned in district court next Thursday.
