Nicole Bobek Drug Arrest

Former U.S. figure skating champion Nicole Bobek has been charged with being part of a New Jersey meth drug ring.

Nicole Bobek, 31 years old, who lives in Manhattan and Florida was not arrested for being in possession of drugs but instead investigations believe that she is part of a drug ring operation. Bobek made her first court appearance this Monday via video from the Hudson County Jail.She did not fight extradition.

Bobek’s lawyer, Sam DeLuca, entered a not guilty plea for Nicole Bobek. She is being held on a $200,000 bail and she faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted.

Bobek was part of a major meth ring busted by authorities, but her name was being withhold until she could be arrested, DeFazio said today.

"She played a significant role in this operation," said DeFazio, whose office conducted a probe that led to more than a dozen arrests.

He wouldn't say whether she used the drug, or was in the distribution business for the gold.

Nicole Bobek won the women’s U.S. figure skating title back in 1995.

A conviction on the charges could bring up to 10 years in state prison.
