FARMINGTON — A felony arraignment hearing for former Syracuse Fire Chief Craig Cottrell, 42, was rescheduled Thursday.
Deputy Davis County Attorney Jason Nelson said in court that Cottrell’s attorney had a family emergency that required her attention.
Judge Thomas L. Kay set the hearing for June 28. Cottrell faces two third-degree felony charges of obtaining a prescription under false pretenses. Prosecutors said the prescriptions were for Lortab, a controlled substance.
Cottrell resigned from the Syracuse Fire Department on Dec. 15, the day charges were filed.
