Charges Dismissed In Drug Case

District Judge David Cybulski ruled in favor of a motion to dismiss, without prejudice, on the drug cases filed against Lindsey Brune and Terry King of Scobey. (If a case is dismissed without prejudice, the accused may be re-charged and retried.) Their trial was set to begin Dec. 10.

The motion to dismiss was filed by Assistant Attorney General Chad Parker. The motion said

additional time is necessary to develop the case against them.

Charges were for the criminal possession of dangerous drugs with intent to distribute, criminal distribution of dangerous drugs on or near a school property (their home was within 1,000 feet of school property), criminal possession of drug paraphernalia and endangering the welfare of children.

Brune was released from custody on her own recognizance in November and King was released on Dec. 5 following the dismissal.

King’s sentencing hearing was scheduled for Wednesday, Dec. 12, on unrelated criminal endangerment charges stemming from an incident when he allegedly brandished a pistol at two men following an altercation in the fall of 2011. Sentencing had been delayed on this case, waiting for the conclusion of a pre-sentence investigation.
