And so it ends
A little more than a year ago police arrested five Columbia undergraduates for selling drugs to fellow students. Chris Coles, Harrison David, Adam Klein, Jose Stephan Perez, and Michael Wymbs reportedly sold some $11,000 worth of cocaine, marijuana, powdered MDMA or ecstasy, and LSD out of their dormitories and in the public rooms of Alpha Epsilon Pi, Pi Kappa Alpha, and Psi Upsilon fraternities.
Adam Klein, the last of the Columbia Five whose case is still outstanding, entered a guilty plea today to charges of attempted criminal possession of a controlled substance. He agreed to plead guilty as part of a deal, in exchange for which prosecutors did not seek jail time for Klein. Instead, they recommended that he be placed on five years’ probation. Klein will be sentenced on Feb. 28.
Only one student, Harrison David, was sentenced to prison. He got six months.
