A jury trial remains scheduled for June 7 for a 30-year-old Hailey man charged with felony possession of cocaine and misdemeanor marijuana and drug paraphernalia crimes.
Jason Arthur Quintana is also charged with probation violation for a drug conviction in 2008.
At a pretrial conference Monday in Blaine County 5th District Court, Ketchum attorney Dan Dolan, assigned as public defender in the case, told Judge Robert J. Elgee that negotiations are under way with the Blaine County Prosecuting Attorney's Office but that a plea agreement had not been reached.
Quintana remains incarcerated in the Blaine County jail on $35,000 bond.
He was arrested at his home on Jan. 18 following a complaint by Probation Officer Chris Ward. A probable-cause affidavit filed by Hailey Patrolman Charles Cox, who was called to assist Ward, alleges that a search of Quintana's home produced cocaine, marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
Cox wrote in the report that Quintana possessed 5 grams of cocaine, a glass pipe for drug use and 0.3 grams of marijuana.
