Student to face drug charges

Senior Clarke Cuthbert will face two class four felony charges at the Knox County Courthouse Monday, Feb. 6, after he was arrested on drug charges in December, according to court records.

Cuthbert is being charged with possession of a controlled substance (containing psilocybin, a hallucinogen) and possession of cannabis between 30 and 500 grams. A class four felony carries a standard sentence of one to three years in prison or a $25,000 fine.

He was arrested Dec. 7, 2011 at 218 S. Cedar St., the location of the Phi Gamma Delta house. Cuthbert, as well as officials in the Dean’s office, declined to comment on the incident.
