Defendant in Hampton bicyclists fatal crash makes drug claim
Cindy Sheppard, 48, of Hampton is scheduled for trial later this month on charges that she provided drugs to a driver that killed two bicyclists in Hampton. (FILE)
Her trial is scheduled to begin May 19 on five charges, including dispensing a controlled drug while on release and possession of a controlled drug and allowing an improper person to operate a vehicle.
Two other cyclists, Uwe Uhmeyer, 60, and Margo Heigh, 54, also of Massachusetts, were injured.
Sheppard faces up to 3½ to 7 years in state prison on each of the drug charges.
Allowing Hess to drive after she was stopped by police is a violation-level offense.
Sheppard pleaded guilty on Jan. 27 to six felony counts of possession of a controlled drug. Prosecutors said that Sheppard provided Fentanyl to Hess while free on bail in the earlier drug case.
