A pre-sentence investigation's ordered for a Drayton man charged with
possession, delivery, or manufacture of a controlled substance.
Antonio Olivarez Cuevas's charge is a Class A felony, punishable to a
maximum of 20-years in prison and a ten-thousand-dollar fine. He's accused of
delivering cocaine to another person over a year ago now.
Walsh County Assistant State's Attorney Kelly Cole told Judge Richard
Geiger negotiations are ongoing towards a plea agreement. She requested, and got,
the pre-sentence investigation ordered. She also asked for another change of plea
or pretrial conference date. Geiger set that for October 16th at one-pm. Cuevas's
jury trial's set for October 23rd through the 26th.
Also, no more random drug testing for Cuevas. Cole says he's tested
clean since last April.
