(Cleveland) — Two students at Baldwin Wallace University are going to jail for operating a drug lab.

Benjamin Knight and Lauren Pajerski — music conservancy students at the liberal arts college in Berea — were sentenced to the minimum nine months in jail Thursday for making and selling Ecstasy.

The 25-year-old Knight and 23-year-old Pajerski were arrested during a raid of their off-campus apartment in October 2012, following an investigation by the university and police in Berea.

They had pleaded guilty to charges accusing them of stealing chemicals from a chemistry lab at the university and manufacturing the illegal stimulant out of an empty dorm room.

Two other students charged in connection with the case avoided jail time.
