Former Wendover Police Chief A. June Carter has been released from Pioneer Valley Hospital after suffering chest pains prior to a scheduled court hearing last week.
Carter, 36, was scheduled to plead guilty to one count each of drug possession and obtaining a prescription drug through a false name.A plea arrangement was worked out with the Utah attorney general's office to have Carter plead guilty Thursday to the lesser charges, while charges of witness tampering and wiretapping would be dropped, his defense attorney, Steven Payton, said.
He was released from Pioneer Valley Hospital Friday.
Earlier, his wife, Janese Carter, was convicted of selling cocaine to undercover narcotics agents at the Crossroads Mall from the trunk of her husband's police car.
Payton said that Thursday's hearing was postponed indefinitely, but would be rescheduled early this week.
