Three more defendants in relics case plan plea change

Salt Lake City, Utah (AP) April 2010

Three more defendants in a federal crackdown on illegal trafficking of American Indian artifacts have scheduled change-of-plea hearings.

Aubry Patterson, Nick Laws and Dale Lyman of Blanding are scheduled to appear April 23 in front of a federal magistrate in Moab. All three initially pleaded not guilty to felony charges related to artifact trafficking.

They were among 26 people charged after a two-year sting operation targeting those who illegally dig, sell and collect artifacts taken from public and tribal lands in the Four Corners area.

Late last month two other defendants – Brent Bullock and Tammy Shumway – pleaded guilty to two felony counts each. They’re scheduled to be sentenced in July.
