Busted - Nicole Bobek charged with drug distribution

Figure skater Nicole Bobek was arrested for allegedly being part of a drug ring that specialized in the distribution of methamphetamine.

This isn't the first time that figure skater Nicole Bobek has been in trouble with the law, and she actually participated in the 1995 U.S. figure skating tournament while under a 2-year probation for a felony charge. Now some 14 years later, at the age of 31 years of age, Nicole Bobek is again finding herself in hot water for the alleged charge of drug distribution. The courts may not be as lenient this time around, as the charges she is facing carry with them a maximum sentence of up to 10 years if she is convicted.

In "Bobek, once a skating star, allegedly key player in drug ring", Philip Hersh wrote:
The first I heard of her was in 1990, when Bobek, at age 12, stood the skating world on its head while winning the U.S. Olympic Festival. She attracted so much general attention George Steinbrenner began paying some of her training expenses.
Now she needs somebody to post a $200,000 bond.
