— A Lake Geneva man accused of selling Viagra to an undercover sheriff’s deputy likely will be charged with three misdemeanors, a defense attorney said Wednesday.

David L. Vos, 55, of 617 Haskins St., Lake Geneva, is charged with three counts of felony delivery of prescription drugs, but the Walworth County District Attorney’s Office is expected to reduce the charges to misdemeanors, defense attorney John Olson said.


Vos appeared in Walworth County Court on Wednesday and waived his right to a preliminary hearing. He was ordered to stand trial.


According to the criminal complaint, an undercover Walworth County deputy met with a man July 26, 2007, at a home along Krueger Road in Geneva Township to buy Viagra.


The deputy gave the man $80 in exchange for Viagra pills, the prescription information and the doctor’s name, according to the criminal complaint.


The deputy met with the man a second time Sept. 17, 2007, to buy more Viagra, according to the criminal complaint, but the man couldn’t get the drug because he had given his prescription to the deputy.


Instead, the man sold the deputy 12 pills from his prescription for Vardenafil, a drug similar to Viagra, according to the criminal complaint.


The deputy met with the man a third time Nov. 30, 2007, at a gas station in Lake Geneva and bought eight pills of Viagra for $80, according to the criminal complaint.


Vos remains free on a $3,000 signature bond.


He is scheduled to be in court Thursday, Oct. 23.
