Kalmikoff pleads not guilty to drug charge

Convicted bank robber will go to trial on February 9.

Krista Kalmikoff will go to trial on Feb. 9.

A woman awaiting sentencing for her role in a series of local armed robberies pled not guilty to drug possession Tuesday. Krista Kalmikoff, 27, was arrested Jan. 8 in Salmo. Kalmikoff has been in custody since then.

The matter will go to trial in Nelson on Tuesday. On March 8, the Crown will ask a judge to revoke the bail conditions that kept Kalmikoff out of jail since she was convicted in December of bank robberies that occurred in 2014.

The scheduling of Kalmikoff’s court appearances has become a testament to the court system’s reputation for multiple delays. Kalmikoff was convicted of the bank robberies December 5, when the court decided that on January 4 the judge would set a future date for sentencing. But on that day, the date to set a date was put off until February 15.
