Published:

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Two students at a private, liberal arts college in northeast Ohio are going to jail for operating a drug lab.

Benjamin Knight and Lauren Pajerski -- music conservancy students at Baldwin Wallace College in suburban Cleveland -- were sentenced to the minimum nine months in jail Thursday for making and selling Ecstasy.

WOIO-TV (http://bit.ly/1flUQTw ) reports that the 25-year-old Knight and 23-year-old Pajerski were arrested during a raid of their off-campus apartment in October 2012, following an investigation by the university and police in Berea.

They had pleaded guilty to charges accusing them of stealing chemicals from a chemistry lab at the university and manufacturing the illegal stimulant out of an empty dorm room.

Two other students charged in connection with the case avoided jail time.
