WORTHINGTON - A Worthington man appeared Tuesday in Nobles County District Court on three drug-related felony charges.
Terry Entinger, 41, pleaded not guilty to fifth-degree possession of marijuana, not of a small amount; a methamphetamine-related crime involving children and vulnerable adults; and cause or permit child or vulnerable adult to ingest, inhale or be exposed to meth.
The charges stem from a June 12 traffic stop arrest of another individual that led to a hotel room search. According to the criminal complaint, Entinger and another individual were discovered in a hotel room, where a Worthington police officer observed white crystals in the toilet bowl. An infant was also in the hotel room.
During the contested omnibus hearing, Entinger’s defense attorney Louis Kuchera objected to one of the four evidence items presented by the prosecuting attorney Adam Johnson. Kuchera argued the CD of the traffic stop, which was presumed to be from the officer’s dash cam, was unrelated to the case, as it involved another individual.
Judge Gordon Moore overruled the objection and will consider the evidence presented.
Worthington man reinstated on probation
A Worthington man was reinstated on probation after admitting Tuesday in Nobles County District Court to violating his probation.
Jose Arevalo-Cortez, 35, violated his probation set in 2014 after being convicted of a simple robbery felony.
Arevalo-Cortez violated his probation by committing fourth-degree damage of property in October 2016.
