A plea bargain has finally ended a case that began in November 2014 when Menlo College student Dominic Ezekiel Jackson was arrested after 20 bags of cocaine, 77 Xanax pills, jars of marijuana, and $925 in cash were found in his dorm room.
On April 20, Mr. Jackson, who is now 23, pleaded no contest to "possession of marijuana with intent to sell" and was sentenced by San Mateo County Superior Court Judge Elizabeth Lee to three years of supervised probation and 90 days in jail, with credit of three days for time served. He must register as a narcotics offender.
Mr. Jackson was arrested Nov. 10, 2014, 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.
