New trial date set after plea withdrawn in drug case

A trial is back on the court calendar for an Oshkosh man after a judge allowed him to withdraw his a no contest plea to drug charges Tuesday.

Lewis, 32, had pleaded no contest to delivery of heroin on June 4. In exchange for that plea, additional charges of conspiracy to delivery cocaine and possession of heroin with the intent to deliver would have been dismissed.

The withdrawn plea followed a change of attorneys representing Lewis, who was set to be sentenced in October.

His former attorney Jeffrey Jazgar submitted a motion to withdraw as counsel. Once the motion was granted, Lewis' new attorney, Mary Harper, submitted a motion to allow Lewis to withdraw his plea to the charges.

Jazgar testified during a hearing Tuesday that there was a misunderstanding or lack or communication regarding whether or not Lewis would have been called to testify in other cases involving co-defendants.

According to the criminal complaint, Lorenzo Curry, 30, and Lord Wilson, 28, were the ringleaders behind the crack cocaine and heroin distribution ring that was responsible for the sale of nearly 20 pounds of heroin, worth an estimated $3.6 million, and 13 pounds of crack cocaine, worth an estimated $900,000, in Oshkosh in 2011.

Lewis is accused of selling drugs for Curry.

Lewis testified during Wilson's trial in September.

A new trial on the original charges of conspiracy to deliver heroin and cocaine and possession of heroin with the intent to deliver has been scheduled to begin May 28.
