ANTIGO, WI (WTAQ) - A trial is scheduled to begin Tuesday for a former Antigo football coach and elementary principal charged with dealing marijuana.
48-year-old John Lund is charged with seven felony counts of manufacturing and selling pot, and maintaining a drug trafficking place.
A jury is expected to be picked in Langlade County Circuit Court in Antigo, and Lund’s trial is scheduled to run for four days before Judge Fred Kawalski.
Lund is accused of running the school portion of a drug ring which sold marijuana to teachers in Antigo and Merrill. That part of it was exposed in late 2011, and Lund resigned soon after he was charged last January.
Since then, authorities have said the school cases were just part of a drug ring that stretched as far south as Wausau.
John Hunter of Antigo was charged five months ago with 50 felony counts of selling both cocaine and marijuana. He has pleaded not guilty, and the status of his case will be reviewed on February 4th.
As of September, 15 people have been charged – mostly teachers accused of using marijuana sold to them by former assistant football coach Scot Peterson. He was sentenced to six months in jail for his role.
