'Big Brother's Matt Faces 20 Years After Pleading Guilty To Drug Charge: [ send to a friend ]
Matthew McDonald may be entering the big house.
Although this time it won't be the friendly confines of the Big Brother house but twenty years in prison.
That's what the 'Big Brother' star is facing after pleading guilty to conspiracy to distribute Oxycodone as part of a drug ring run by the season's winner, Adam Jasinski.
Police claim he used his $500,000 winnings to finance the entire operation. The 31-year-old was arrested after he attempted to sell the drugs to a undercover Drug Enforcement Administration witness.
McDonald had pleaded not guilty in April to distributing the pills and conspiracy with intent to distribute, but he may have changed his mind after Jasinski finally fessed up to the scheme in October.
Both men are facing a maximum of twenty years in prison. Jasinski is scheduled to be sentenced Wednesday in Massachusetts federal court while McDonald will be sentenced in April.
He is also facing separate state charges of aggravated assault and battery in the alleged beating of his pregnant girlfriend last year.
