Jury trial set for man accused of bringing fentanyl, sex worker to Burleigh County
BISMARCK, N.D. (KFYR) - A district court judge set a jury trial for a Las Vegas man who police say brought fentanyl and a sex worker into Burleigh County.
Twenty-seven-year-old John Pamplin faces several charges of intent to deliver fentanyl, cocaine, and other drugs and a charge for facilitating prostitution stemming from an incident in early August.
Police say they located Pamplin at a Bismarck hotel where they found 284 fentanyl pills, and over 1,500 grams of various other drugs. They also say Pamplin provided protection and paid airfare for a sex worker to come work in Bismarck.
Pamplin pleaded not guilty to all charges.
Thursday, Judge Bobbi Weiler found enough evidence to move the case forward. She set a jury trial for Jan. 19, 2022.
Pamplin is held at the Burleigh Morton Detention Center on a $200,000 bond.
