Former Figure Skater Nicole Bobek Charged in Drug Ring

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

The 31-year-old made her first court appearance Monday by video from the Hudson County Jail. The skater, who has homes in New York and Jupiter, Fla., was arrested in Florida last week.

She is charged with conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine in Hudson County.

Attorney Sam DeLuca entered a not guilty plea on Bobek's behalf. She was held on $200,000 bail and faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted.

Bobek won the women's U.S. figure skating title in 1995.
