Michael Wymbs‘ plea deal with narcotics prosecutors got him a sentence of five years probation – no jail time.
He had been charged with selling LSD-laced candies and ecstasy pills in what become an open fraternity house drug bazaar at the Ivy League Manhattan school.
Judge Michael Sonberg agreed to court-mandated drug treatment for Wymbs as part of his probation.
The former student said only two words to the court: “I apologize.”
His attorney, Michael Bachner, told the judge that Wymbs is back in college going to a CUNY school. The judge approved , saying that those who attended a CUNY school think it’s as good as or better than an Ivy League education.
