Ronald Cummings next court appearance set July 19, 2010.
Hank Jr. (Tommy) next court appearance set June 21, 2010.
Misty Croslin's next court appearance set June 8, 2010.
Hollars and Overstreet's attorney could not be reached Thursday afternoon for comment.
Misty faces eight counts of trafficking, including seven in Putnam County and one in St. Johns.
Misty Croslin, has already told detectives all she can, said her attorney, Robert Fields.
Fields said he has not negotiated with prosecutors but is not surprised that others have been making deals.
"Misty's position is she's told law enforcement what happened and it's their decision to act on the information," he said.
Fields said the drug charges create pressure on everyone to cooperate with detectives. After the arrests, investigators said they intended to use the opportunity to discuss HaLeigh's case.
"Any reasonable person could come to the conclusion that the cases are linked," Fields said.

And if remains never are found, legal experts say, successfully prosecuting someone for Haleigh's death will be difficult unless a suspect confesses.
"It can be done and it has been done successfully, but it is difficult," said Bob Dekle, a University of Florida law professor. "It's a challenge to a prosecutor."
