Harrison David checks into Rikers Island
Harrison David, SEAS ’12, began serving his 3 1/2 month sentence at Rikers Island this morning, the New York Post reports. On July 19, David plead guilty to criminal sale of a controlled substance in the third degree, making him the first of the Columbia 5 to be convicted for the group’s alleged crimes. According to the Post report, David gave “an emotional courtroom hug” to his father before turning himself in, even though the two feuded publicly after the initial arrests.
David was sentenced to 6 months total, but will be able to leave in mid-December thanks to to good behavior and the time he served prior to his conviction.
