Cynthia Hamilton Wilson

A jury trial has been scheduled for March 29 for a Sun Valley woman accused of involvement last summer in a quarter-pound sale of marijuana to an Idaho State Police confidential informant.

Twenty-eight-year-old Cynthia Hamilton Wilson pleaded not guilty at arraignment Monday in Blaine County 5th District Court to a felony charge of delivery of marijuana. Judge Robert J. Elgee informed Wilson that the crime is punishable by up to five years in prison.

The crime allegedly occurred on June 30 in the parking lot of Mountainview Grocery in southern Ketchum. A probable-cause affidavit filed by ISP Detective Richard Garcia alleges that Wilson brought the marijuana to the sale.

Frank Vincent Shields, a 29-year-old Hailey man, was also charged with felony delivery of marijuana for involvement in the same alleged transaction. Shields is also charged with the same crime for alleged sales of quarter-pound lots of marijuana to the ISP confidential informant on April 27 in Bellevue and on May 28 in Hailey. Shields has pleaded not guilty to all three charges and a jury trial is scheduled in his case for March 15.

Wilson is represented by Ketchum attorney Andrew Parnes. She is currently free on $5,000 bond.
