Accused flower pot vandal pleads not guilty, trial set for August

Bobby Honeycutt has pleaded not guilty to charges related to a flower pot vandalism spree in downtown Glenwood Springs last July. The case has been set for trial starting Aug. 22.

Honeycutt appeared in Garfield District Court on March 10 where he entered the not-guilty plea to charges including class 5 felony criminal mischief, according to Deputy 9th District Attorney Peter Beyel. A May 20 motions hearing has been set in that case.

Honeycutt has also requested a preliminary hearing to determine if enough evidence exists to try him in a separate case involving felony drug possession and intent to distribute charges. He is due back in court March 24 for a ruling as to whether he is entitled to a preliminary hearing.

In December, Honeycutt was evaluated for competency by the Colorado Mental Health Institute in Pueblo, which found him competent for court proceedings.
