Trial dates set for alleged repeat meth offender


Trial dates have been scheduled against a Craig man, who is allegedly a repeat methamphetamine offender.

Steven Wick, 29, is charged with the same crime in two separate cases -- sale/distribution of methamphetamine, a class 2 felony. He appeared for arraignment hearings on both cases Tuesday in 14th Judicial District Court.

Wick, who has pleaded not guilty to the charges, is scheduled for two separate, two-day trials beginning June 4 and July 2, prosecutor Russell Wasley said.

Wick is in custody at Moffat County Jail. If convicted, he could face eight to 24 years in prison, prosecutors said.

He was one of 15 defendants arrested during a December 2005 methamphetamine sweep, one of the biggest drug busts in Moffat County history. He pleaded guilty in March to attempted distribution of meth, a felony, and was sentenced to three years probation.

Police arrested him again in 2006 when the local drug task force, the Greater Routt and Moffat Narcotic Enforcement Team, took him into custody following the execution of three search warrants served during a two-day period.
