Student pleads guilty in drug trial

A former Lafayette student who was arrested last spring in connection with a drug ring operating in Pennsylvania entered into an open guilty plea to misdemeanor charges earlier last week.

Christian Euler, 23, was arrested in February for alleged participation in a drug trafficking operation that fed into nearby high schools and colleges. Euler, a resident of Radnor Township, plead guilty to three misdemeanor charges involving marijuana, according to court records. The three charges listed were one count of receipt in commerce, of possession, and of drug paraphernalia.

Euler was classified as a sub-dealer in a court release. Neil Scott and Timothy Brooks, both of the graduates of the Haverford School, acted as the suppliers for their operation, which they called the “Main Line Take Over Project.”

Scott and Brooks made regular trips to Lafayette to deliver marijuana, ecstasy, and cocaine, according to court records. Euler was charged with only marijuana-related offenses.

Euler was initially charged with five felonies and two misdemeanors, but one felony was reduced to a misdemeanor and the rest of the felonies were waived, according to Prosecutor Jason Whalley.

“The judge could give him probation or he could give him jail time, but that’s entirely up to [him] after a sentencing hearing,” Whalley said.

“All of this has brought attention to drug behavior going on with young people, and how one mistake jeopardizes and entire future,” Whalley added in an email.

John Rosemann, 22, another former Lafayette student, was arrested and is awaiting trial.

Euler’s attorney could not be reached for comment.
