Hagey pleads not guilty to meth charge

Medford, Ore. — A high-profile Jackson County employee facing a felony meth charge says he’s not guilty. Shane Hagey was arrested at a Medford Purple Parrot on December 30, 2015 after allegedly buying methamphetamine from an informant during an investigation by Medford Police.

Hagey is the director of Jackson County Community Justice, where he is in charge of dozens of probation and parole officers. He’s been on leave since December 31st.

During his arraignment Friday, Hagey pleaded not guilty to the charge. His next court date is scheduled for February 29th.

NBC5 News spoke with Jackson County District Attorney Beth Heckert, she says she will not offer a conditional discharge as part of her plea offer. That means Hagey won’t have the ability to have the felony dropped from his record if he were to plead guilty.
