A San Bernardino man is expected to be arraigned today on charges alleging that he supplied methamphetamine to CSUSB associate professor Steve Kinzey for distribution in a drug trafficking ring. Jeremy Disney, whose scheduled appearance Thursday in San Bernardino Superior Court was put over to today, faces two felony charges for his part in the so-called "Devils Professor" case, according to court personnel.
Prosecutors allege Disney, 31, also has four prior convictions in Superior Court, court records show.
Disney's new court date coincides with scheduled appearances by Kinzey and other co-defendants Holly Robinson, Edward Freer, Hans Preszler and Christopher Rikerd.
Authorities began investigating the group earlier this year during a federal undercover operation involving outlaw biker clubs in the county.
Kinzey is president of the San Bernardino Mountains Chapter of the Devils Diciples motorcycle club, a group founded in Fontana in 1967, according to sheriff's deputies.
Detectives allege Kinzey, of Highland, purchased large amounts of meth from Disney and then distributed ounce quantities to other defendants who split it up into smaller amounts for mid-level and street-level dealers, said sheriff's Detective Jason Rosenbaum.
Authorities raided Kinzey's East Highlands Ranch home on Aug. 26 and intercepted a pound of meth that was being delivered.
Five defendants in the case have since pleaded guilty,
as part of plea bargains to one felony count of conspiracy. Most recently, Eric Cortez, 31, of Redlands pleaded guilty Wednesday, and he was sentenced to 180 days in county jail and three years of supervised probation, court records show. He returns to court Nov. 18 for a probation review hearing.
Wendi Lee Witherell is set to be sentenced Monday, and Stephanie Padilla and Elaine Flores both return to court Tuesday for sentencing.
Court records show Witherell, 34, of Mentone arrived to court late Wednesday and was returned to custody. She pleaded guilty Sept. 27.
Flores, 35, and Padilla, 33, both of Redlands, pleaded guilty on Oct. 3.
Chelsea Johnson, 34, of Redlands pleaded guilty Oct. 19 and she was sentenced to 220 days in county jail and three years of supervised probation. She returns to court Nov. 16 for a probation review hearing.
