Hernandez-Correa trial on meth charges delayed

One of three Lyon County residents accused of meth production is not having her trial start this week as originally planned.

Michelle Hernandez-Correa was supposed to go to trial Monday on charges of meth distribution, illegal use of a communication facility and other counts.

Court proceedings have now been continued to late January, when she will have a status conference. No new trial date has been set. Hernandez-Correa waived her right to a speedy trial before her court schedule was adjusted.

Hernandez-Correa will now join her co-defendants, Wes Gohring and Dave Wasylk, in having trials next year. Gohring is currently set for two trials, but a motion to consolidate his court cases will be heard Friday.

Wasylk is now set for a March 17 trial date. A hearing on a motion to suppress the warrant leading to Wasylk's arrest will be heard Feb. 5.
