According to news reports and court records, John Hunter appeared in Langlade County Court today and pled not guilty to the 50 felony drug charges against him.
Although no other names are mentioned, we know from past reports that some former Antigo teachers and principal had also been charged in connection with this case. Some of those teachers have already reached plea deals in their misdemeanor cases of possession of THC.
The former Elementary school principal, John Lund, is scheduled for a Jury Trial in January, with a final pre-trial hearing set for December 20.

Since the criminal complaint had been available to the public, it was obvious that John Hunter played a very large role in this investigation and I will be curious to see how he is treated in relation to the others involved.
What would be a fair sentence for someone who was admittedly running cocaine and marijuana from Milwaukee up to Antigo and Bass Lake?
