DENVER – The Douglas County man accused of distributing marijuana laced with meth to students in Woodland Park has pleaded not guilty.
John Fifield, 47, pleaded not guilty on Feb. 8 to numerous charges and was released on a $25,000 unsecured bond with home detention.
Fifield was arrested last November after a multi-agency task force received a tip that he supplied drugs to Woodland Park Middle School students. Authorities said Fifield provided multiple students drug paraphernalia as well.
“In a case like this involving young children, we will aggressively pursue federal charges and mandatory minimum sentencing every time,” said U.S. Attorney Jason Dunn in a news release.
Following his arrest, the Woodland Park School District hosted a parent meeting about the dangers of underage marijuana use and teen vaping.
