Her attorney, public defender Sheryl Uhlmann, told the court Tuesday that her client was not ready to enter a plea. Chief Judge Michael O'Hara rescheduled the plea hearings for May 2.

The Greater Routt and Moffat Narcotic Enforcement Team arrested Walker in November 2006 along with seven other suspects.

One of those suspects arrested by GRAMNET was Nathan Andrew Seltzer, another suspect scheduled for a court appearance Tuesday, as part of the same November operation.

Seltzer is charged in Moffat County Court with conspiracy to possess a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance, distribution of a controlled substance and possession of a forged instrument. All are felonies. He also faces a petty offense charge of possession of marijuana.

Judge Sandra Gardner continued Seltzer's preliminary hearing Tuesday to April 24. A status conference hearing and a hearing on whether to revoke Seltzer's probation have also been scheduled for April 24, a court clerk said.

Seltzer posted about $23,000 in bond money Tuesday and was released from Moffat County Jail.
