Court Date Rescheduled for Former Assistant District Attorney
The preliminary hearing scheduled on Wednesday morning for former Centre County Assistant District Attorney Steve Sloane, who faces felony drug charges, has been pushed back to Nov. 7.
A court spokeswoman said Sloane does not have an attorney at this time and could not confirm if he is representing himself. He asked for a continuance and was granted it but further details were not available.
Sloane, 53, was arraigned Oct. 1 on felony drug charges in Mifflin County by Judge Tammy Hunter on a $100,000 unsecured bail. He was arrested and charged with felony counts including intent to manufacture and criminal use of a communication facility, and a charge of misdemeanor intent to possess.
In Oct. 2011, narcotics officials in California contacted State College Police when they intercepted a package, its contents including two ounces of marijuana and 20 hydrocondone pills. The criminal complaint said a 'Steven Ice' was shipping the contents from California to Sloane's place of work.
Sloane could not be reached for comment.
