Former Pharmacist Going To Trial After All

A former Lawton pharmacist will be going to trial after all.

That's at the order of a Comanche County Judge for Haskell Evans Junior.  Despite a  plea deal with state prosecutors, Judge Keith Aycock refused to dismiss the charges against Evans.

The judge has set trial for September 27th.  You'll remember state prosecutors made a deal with Evans and his attorney where they agreed to accept his guilty plea to three lesser charges. Evans was supposed to receive a deferred sentence as part of the deal.

Evans originally was accused of selling meth-making ingredients and failing to report the sales to state narcotics officials. The deal required him to pay hefty fines to the state, surrender his license, and sell his business.  But Judge Aycock has refused to dismiss the case, ordering a trial for September 27th.
