HUTCHINSON – A 57-year-old man has been formally charged in three cases, all involving the alleged distribution of drugs.
Randy Boyd is accused of distributing methamphetamine and heroin in all three cases — two of the cases occurring on the same date, Oct. 5. The state alleged that in those two cases, he had a seller’s quantity of methamphetamine and heroin.
The third case involves the same charges involving the distribution of methamphetamine and heroin.
His bond was set at $300,000.
When appearing in court, he cut the judge off from reading the formal charges, which is required.
“I know the charges, and I don’t want to waste the court’s time,” said Boyd as hung up the phone from the Reno County Correctional Facility.
He was brought back to via telephone later in the court proceedings and, finally, he allowed the judge to read the complaints against him.
During that hearing, he also indicated he would get the American Civil Liberties Union to represent him. Magistrate Judge Daniel Gilligan set another hearing for next week to see if that happens.
