MASON CITY – In October of 2011 21-year-old Tyler Anton Meuer had received suspended prison sentences and reduced charges through a plea bargain deal.

In exchange for a voluntary negotiated plea of guilty a felony 2nd degree theft charge was reduced to aggravated misdemeanor 3rd degree theft charge and a carrying weapons charge remained unchanged. At sentencing Meuer received two separate suspended prison sentences, suspended fines, and probation.

The weapons charge was related to Meuer brandishing a handgun during an altercation at Big Blue last summer. Meuer did not have a valid permit to carry or formal training for handling the weapon.

By January a warrant was issued for Meuer’s arrest after the Iowa Department of Corrections reported a probation violation. Meuer was captured by law enforcement a couple days later.

On Friday, February 17th, Meuer was sentenced to two concurrent two year prison sentences for violating probation by District Court Judge James M. Drew, reversing the suspension of the sentences handed down four month prior by Senior Judge Carlynn D. Grupp. Meuer’s suspended fines remain suspended but the Iowa Department of Correction has been relieved of duty to supervise him.

Tyler Meuer is currently listed on the Cerro Gordo County Sheriff’s Inmate population report as awaiting transport to prison.
