Trial date set for Menlo College student accused of selling drugs


A Menlo College student who was arrested over a year ago when 20 bags of cocaine, 77 Xanax pills, jars of marijuana, and $925 in cash were found in his dorm room, has had his trial date set for next March 28, according to District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe.

Dominic Ezekiel Jackson, 22, from Bellevue, Washington, was arrested Nov. 10 by officers from the San Mateo County Narcotics Task Force with the assistance of Atherton police. He was charged with possession of a controlled substance for sale, possession of marijuana for sale, and conspiracy to commit a crime.

In January 2015, charges against a second student were dropped due to lack of evidence.

Mr. Jackson is out of custody without bail, the district attorney said. He must meet twice a week with the pretrial services division, abstain from alcohol and drugs, and undergo periodic substance testing, the DA said.
