Sentencing for David Frank Nolan, 38, is scheduled for Jan. 29.

Court documents state Nolan was charged after agents with the South Central Drug Task Force conducted a confidential informant purchase of meth from Nolan on Nov. 9, 2016. Nolan reportedly provided 4 grams of meth to a third party and the informant in the city parking lot within 300 feet of Morin Park.

A probation violation has since been alleged, and a probation violation hearing is scheduled for Jan. 29. A hearing in the second file is also scheduled for Jan. 29.
