Columbia student heads to jail
A Columbia University student accused of running a drug ring from his fraternity house will be trading Ivy League living for a prison cell.
Harrison David, 20, who was an engineering major, pleaded guilty to selling drugs in July and was sentenced this week to six months in jail. With good behavior and time served, he could be in prison for a little longer than three months.
Cops bought some $11,000 worth of drugs in what they called “Operation Ivy League.” The December raid came after five months of investigative work, during which David sold cocaine to undercover cops at his apartment on 113th Street.
Four others who were arrested are expected to serve jail time for the alleged drug ring.
