Student faces trial after four drug charges

By staff reports

WSU student Andrew P. Rega will appear in court today for the second time, after police seized cocaine with a street value of $12,000 from his home late last week.

A Whitman County prosecutor said the hearing at 10 am will likely serve as an arraignment, where Rega will plead guilty or not guilty. Afterward, a trial date will be chosen.

The official charges against Rega include two counts of delivering cocaine, one count of possessing and intent to deliver cocaine, one count of delivering clonazepam, one count of intent to deliver clonazepam, and one count of intent to deliver amphetamines.

Rega’s terms of release included not harassing or intimidating witnesses, not possessing illegal drugs, and not to leave Washington or Northern Idaho.
