Former Eastern student Jenny Le’s attorney was not present for her status hearing which was rescheduled to Oct. 5 at 1 p.m.

Le’s defense attorney, Sean Britton, was unavailable due to scheduling conflicts in other counties.

Le was arrested Sept. 30, 2019 and charged with two Class X felonies, one Class One felony and one Class Three felony.

Her bond was set at $75,000.

The first Class X charge accuses Le of possession of 5,178 grams of marijuana and the second accuses her of possessing over 600 but less than 1,500 segregated parts of an object(s) containing lysergic acid diethylamide, commonly known as LSD.

The first charge carries a maximum sentence of 30 years and the second carries a maximum of 50 years.

The Class 1 charge carries a maximum sentence of 40 years and the Class 3 charge carries a maximum sentence of 5 years.

During her first appearance Le pleaded not guilty to the charges and requested a jury trial.

Over $110,000 worth of drugs were located during the execution of a search warrant for Le’s apartment at 1132 Sixth St., according the affidavit.
