Plea change hearing set in meth case

By The Associated Press

OXFORD — A change plea hearing is scheduled Friday for a man accused of conspiring to possess more than 50 grams of methamphetamine with intent to distribute the drug.

The federal indictment in the case says Scottie Lane Gillespie and Charles Thomas Davis conspired to possess the drug in north Mississippi in September 2010.

A change of plea hearing is scheduled for Gillespie in U.S. District Court in Oxford. He had previously pleaded not guilty.

Davis pleaded guilty on Aug. 2.
