From Zest to Meth: Former Figure Skater Charged
July 9th, 2009 by Rick
Looks like this 1995 U.S. figure skating champion chose the wrong ice to make a career out of…
On Tuesday, Nicole Bobek, a former Olympic athlete, plead not guilty, via video from the Hudson county jail, to the charges of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine in Hudson County, New Jersey.
The 31-year old was arrested last week, at her house in Jupiter, FL, after a year long investigation into a drug ring. Bobek waived extradition rights and was sent to the Garden City. Nineteen people have also been arrested in connection with the drug ring.
Hudson County Prosecutor Edward DeFazio said:
She played a significant role in this operation. [...] She was actively involved in the upper echelon of this ring.
Bobek is free on bond, more than likely heading back to her other home in Manhattan, which coincidentally is in the same state where the investigation into the drug ring first began. If convicted, she faces up to 10 years and a $150,000 fine.
