Former UNC student cuts deal on drug charges

Posted February 9, 2011

— A former University of North Carolina student who admitted to selling cocaine on campus cut a deal to reduce his jail time. 

A judge on Wednesday sentenced Jonathan Plymale to 20 months in prison for trafficking. He faced up to 11 years, but because he assisted police in other arrests, that sentence was significantly cut.

His girlfriend was sentenced to 90 days on the same charges. Lawyers argued she was more help to the police in other cases.

    @hondabyz - being a snitch nowadays is not like it used to be. Look at the mafia and how they are all turning on each other. No such thing as "omerta" anymore. Also, he has helped stop the sale of drugs to other students and youth in the community... good going! - He'll be fine in prison. Probably have the best of the best while there.

    Thank heavens there was a visting Judge(Hardin)for this. Judge Fox would have done his usual and handed down a couple years probation.
