2 Mission residents plead not guilty to drug trafficking
PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — Two Mission residents accused of trafficking methamphetamine in South Dakota have pleaded not guilty to federal drug and weapons charges.
The U.S. attorney’s office says 36-year-olds Walter Wright and Micole Menard were indicted in a case conducted by the Northern Plains Safe Trails Drug Enforcement Task Force and Rosebud Sioux law officers.
Wright has been released on bond and Menard has been jailed until trial. Their trial dates weren’t immediately scheduled. They could face up to life in prison if convicted.
