Trial date set for Gering woman accused of selling meth with kids in the car

Posted: Updated:

A trial date has been set for a Gering woman accused of selling methamphetamine while two young children were in her car.

23-year-old Brianna Novotny is charged with two counts of Child Abuse, a Class IIIA felony.

Court documents say that in July, a cooperating individual (CI) with the WING Drug Task Force met up with Novotny and purchased meth. During the buy, there were two children under the age of 5-years-old in the car.

The CI also told officers that after the buy, she had at least 5 grams of methamphetamine on her person. They followed her to a Gering gas station where she was filling up, and was caught emptying a plastic bag that had a white powdery substance.

Novotny has pleaded not guilty to the two child abuse counts; and is set to go to trial in the jury term that begins on December 2nd.

If convicted, each charge carries a maximum of five years in prison.
