PALATKA - An Aug. 23 trial date was set Thursday morning for Misty Croslin's seven drug charges in Putnam County.
She is charged also with drug trafficking in St. Johns County.
Hank "Tommy" Croslin Jr. was in court as well. He entered no-contest pleas to charges of trafficking in hydrocodone & possession of hydrocodone. Circuit Judge Terry LaRue ordered a pre-sentencing investigation.
On the trafficking charge, Tommy Croslin faces a minimum sentence of 44 months in prison.
"He wants to get this behind him and move on," Tommy's lawyer James Werter said . Afterward, the lawyer said his client has told police everything he knows about the disappearance - and the presumed death - of Haleigh Cummings. Werter added that the State Attorney's Office seems to be looking for more information.
Werter said they looked at the facts in the drug case and decided on the no-contest plea.
Lisa and Hank Sr. - attended the hearings. Lisa Croslin said her heart jumped when she saw her daughter. It was the first time in months she had seen her.
"Misty is getting fat and Tommy is losing weight," she said.
