Red face Former skating champ Nicole Bobek charged with 'significant role' in drug ring

by Michaelangelo Conte/The Jersey Journal Monday July 06, 2009, 2:53 PM


Reena Rose Sibayan/The Jersey JournalNicole Bobek is seen on closed-circuit television from Hudson County jail as her lawyer, Sam DeLuca, appears at Central Judicial Processing in Jersey City today.
Former United States figure skating champion and World Figure Skating Championship bronze medalist Nicole Bobek made her first appearance in a Jersey City court this morning on the charge of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine.
"She played a significant role in this operation," said Hudson County Prosecutor Edward DeFazio said of the probe that took down a methamphetamine ring and resulted in more than a dozen arrests, including Bobek. "She was actively involved in the upper echelon of this ring."
Christopher Navin/IFSmagazine.comNicole Bobek is seen in 1998 photo.
Bobek finished a disappointment 17th at the 1998 Winter Olympics at Nagano, Japan.
Bobek, 31, who has homes in Manhattan and in Jupiter, Fla., appeared in Central Judicial Processing Court via video link from the Hudson County jail in Kearny. She was arrested in Florida as a fugitive from justice based on the charged filed in Hudson County. Bobek did not fight extradition and was brought to New Jersey on Thursday by officers of the Hudson County Sheriffs office.
Bobek wore the green garb of the county jail when she appeared in the small video conferencing room at the jail. Her hair was short and dark colored, a stark contrast to the long flowing blonde locks she sported during her skating years.
DeFazio said the activity that led to charges against Bobek occurred in New York.
Her mother, Jana Bobek, attended this morning's hearing at which Nicole Bobek was represented by Jersey City attorney Sam DeLuca.
Nicole Bobek is being held at the jail on a $200,000 cash or bond bail.Although DeFazio released information the probe into the methamphetamine ring recently, he said he did not release Nicole Bobek's name because she was not yet in custody at the time.
She faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted of the charges

By Deborah Brunswick
CNN



(CNN) -- Former figure skating champion and Olympian Nicole Bobek was released on bond Tuesday after pleading not guilty in a New Jersey court to a drug conspiracy charge, the prosecutor's office said.
Former figure skating champion Nicole Bobek faces drug charges in New Jersey.










Bobek, 31, who won the U.S figure skating title in 1995, was arrested at her home in Jupiter, Florida, last week on a charge of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine in Hudson County, New Jersey, according to Guy Gregory of the Hudson County prosecutor's office.
She waived extradition rights to face the charges in New Jersey and made her first appearance in court on Monday via video, entering a plea of not guilty, Gregory told CNN.
Bail was set at $200,000, and Prosecutor Edward DeFazio said later Tuesday that Bobek had posted bail and was released.
According to the prosecutor's office, 20 people have been arrested in connection with the alleged drug ring, which police have been investigating for nearly a year.
Bobek could face up to 10 years in prison if convicted.
Her attorney, Sam DeLuca, was not immediately available for comment.

I don't know much about her but when someone mentions meth and skating, I'd have thought it was Tonya Harding

Goodness me! And she was my favorite American skater during the 1998 Winter Olympics.
So much sad news these days. I need to stop checking out the non-tennis forum.
