Ex-MSU Football Recruit Admits Selling Pot Brownies
A former Montana State University football recruit has acknowledged selling marijuana-laced brownies to fellow high school graduates, several of whom became sick at what was supposed to be a drug- and alcohol-free graduation party in Kalispell.
Connor Thomas, 18, entered the pleas in Youth Court Friday to two felony charges of distributing drugs in early June. Thomas was initially charged in District Court, but the case was moved to Youth Court in August.
The court declared Thomas a delinquent youth and a serious juvenile offender. A disposition hearing is set for Sept. 23.
Thomas, who had a 4.0 grade point average at Flathead High, was suspended for two games last fall after police stopped a car he was driving and discovered marijuana and paraphernalia.
