The first five Fletcher administration officials charged with violating state personnel laws enter their pleas.

This morning in their first court appearance, the five officials pleaded not guilty to violating merit system laws.

The charges are misdemeanors with penalties of up to one year in jail.

Dick Murgatroyd, Bill Nighbert, Jim Adams, Dan Druen, and Cory Meadows will return to court September 14.
