Baldwin Wallace students sentenced for operating Ecstasy 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 reported Knight, 25, and Pajerski, 23, 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.
