Man charged with conspiracy to distribute; judge ok's mental eval

Posted: Updated:

A federal judge has approved a request for an additional 30 days to complete a mental evaluation for a man charged with conspiring to distribute the drug known as Ecstasy or Molly.

Mark Frank Davis was indicted as part of the same investigation that snagged David Coates, the former football coach at Northwest Rankin High School. Coates died before the trial.

CoatesDavis is charged with conspiracy to distribute MDMA.

 

His attorney, Patrick Rand, said the evaluation is ongoing. He also says Davis is classified by Veterans Affairs as 100 percent disabled and there's anecdotal evidence of serious mental problems.

Coates, along with his son, daughter and others were charged in 2011 in a scheme to distribute marijuana, ecstasy and other drugs in an investigation called "Operation Brilliant Orange".
