Lehman Schwab ’18 — who was was indicted on multiple drug charges March 25 for possession of cocaine — was arraigned in Tompkins County Court Wednesday, according to the court documents.

Schwab was released on his own recognizance and is currently at a Florida treatment center, where a counselor recommended that he continue treatment, according to the documents.

Police took Schwab into custody on Dec. 4, 2015, after finding nearly 20 grams of cocaine in his suite in Hans Bethe House, according to a University press release. Officers also found small ziplock bags and a digital scale that they believe were used in drug sales.

Schwab — who reportedly also had “compounds, mixtures or substances” containing at least half an ounce of cocaine — was charged with two counts of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.

A conference between Schwab’s attorneys will take place later this month, according to The Ithaca Voice.
