Pinedale man's felony trial moved to July


SUBLETTE COUNTY – At the last moment before his March 8 jury trial, Jeffrey J. Brost, of Pinedale, signed a waiver of speedy trial. It is now set for July 19 with another pretrial conference on June 18 at 1 p.m.

His 9th District Court jury trial had been set for the same day as Victoria C. Carter; her March 8 trial was vacated after she entered into a plea agreement.

Both are charged with felony delivery of meth to a man last September who then went to the Sublette County Sheriff’s Office and complained about them. Detectives enlisted the man as a confidential informant and sent him back to buy more meth, according to court records. Brost and Carter are also charged with felony conspiracy to deliver meth and misdemeanor possession of meth. Carter also faces misdemeanor possession of marijuana.

Brost’s pretrial videoconference took place on Feb. 25, the same day as Carter’s change-of-plea hearing. Judge Marv Tyler halted the hearing after Carter expressed unhappiness with the potential agreement reached with public defender Elisabeth Trefonas and Sublette County Attorney Mike Crosson. Her hearing is not yet rescheduled.
