Trial For Alleged Drug Dealer Delayed For The Fifth Time

Brendan Paul Latsko, age 24, was scheduled to face trial the week of August 31 on charges of misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia, and felony possession with the intent to distribute a controlled substance.

His trial has now been rescheduled for the week of October 26.
