Ex-skate champ Nicole Bobek faces sentencing

JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) - August 16, 2010

Hudson County Assistant Prosecutor Lisa Ledoux says she won't press for prison time. She will ask for a penalty of 364 days in the county jail with no probation.

Bobek pleaded guilty in June to a charge of conspiring to distribute crystal methamphetamine.

The 32-year-old was among 28 people charged last July with running a network that allegedly distributed $10,000 worth of methamphetamine per week.

The alleged leader of the group, Edward Cruz Jr., was sentenced Aug. 12 to 16 years in prison.

Bobek, of Jupiter, Fla., won the U.S. figure skating title in 1995.
