Sentencing scheduled in Georgetown drug case

Two college students arrested at Georgetown University for creating a drug lab in a dorm room are scheduled to be sentenced.

Charles Smith and John Perrone are scheduled to be in federal court Friday in Washington. They pleaded guilty in February to manufacturing an illegal and rare hallucinogenic drug, DMT.

Lawyers for the government and the two men have agreed to recommend that they be sentenced to a six-month suspended jail sentence, meaning that they would be put on probation and do community service.

At the time of their arrest, Smith was a freshman at Georgetown and Perrone was a freshman at the University of Richmond.
