Lafayette students charged in connection to drug trafficking


Two Lafayette students were charged in federal court today in Montgomery County regarding a drug ring run by two former graduates of a suburban Philadelphia private school.

Christian Euler ‘14 of Villanova, Pa., who is still enrolled at the college, and John Rosemann ‘15, of Weston, Conn., a former student, were to appear in front of District Judge Kathleen Valentine on Monday. According to The Express-Times, Euler was charged with possession with intent to deliver drugs, conspiracy, corrupt organizations employee, and possession of drug paraphernalia. Rosemann is to be accused of similar charges.

Both students were arrested in February on drug trafficking charges in connection with Neil Scott, 25, and Timothy Brooks, 18, two former graduates of The Haverford School in Haverford, Pa. According to NBC10 in Philadelphia, Brooks and Scott were planning to monopolize the drug trade in five high schools and three colleges on Pennsylvania’s Main Line, which is located in eastern and central Pa. They supplied dealers at the school with marijuana, cocaine and ecstasy to the sub-dealers, according to the Associated Press.

According to Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Ferman, Brooks and Scott employed “sub-dealers” at Lafayette, Haverford, and Gettysburg Colleges, The Haverford School, Lower Merion High School and Harriton High School in Lower Merion Township, Pa., Conestoga High School in Tredyffrin Township, Pa., and Radnor High School in Radnor, Pa.

In addition to Euler, Rosemann, Brooks, and Scott, seven more high school and college students have been identified as sub-dealers.

    I just wonder if it was worth it? Were the rewards these students received worth the risk they took? Did they reap anything that was worth a criminal record, worth potentially serving time? How does it feel to bring shame and financial hardship to your parents and to the schools you attended? Were you even thinking of those things or did you just consider yourself so slick that you would never, ever get caught? Because nothing I have read would indicate that you are so special and gifted that you are above the law. I won’t spend a single minute feeling sorry for you because whatever justice hands you is deserved but I do feel sorry for the parents that trusted you and now must post your bail and pay for your attorneys after having paid for your education.

    These boys have some great attorney power on their side, so I bet they can get away with less than 10 years total, even if they do show that they peddled their goods to young teens.

    The schools and families involves will all want this one to go away, so expect nothing controversial and a quick plea bargain.
