Man reaches deal in artifacts case

SALT LAKE CITY — Attorneys for a southern Utah math teacher facing multiple felony charges for the illegal trafficking of American Indian artifacts say they’ve reached a plea agreement with federal prosecutors.

David Lacy, of Blanding, was set for a six-day jury trial on July 11.

Lacy was one of 26 people indicted in Utah, New Mexico and Colorado in 2009 for artifacts looting and trafficking after an undercover investigation.

A hearing in Salt Lake City’s U.S. District Court was canceled late today after the sides worked out an agreement in principal.

Lacy’s attorney, Matthew Lewis, declined to discuss the deal. Assistant U.S. Attorney Richard McKelvie also wouldn’t comment on the details.

McKelvie says a change of plea hearing will be held in July.
