Sorry this article doesnt seem to contain all the facts SWiHR read in the paper, but its the only online source he could find on the story. The newspaper told about how he was busted (apparently a fellow coworker caught on) and listed the chemicals he had aquired, as well as how far along in the process he was. If anyone finds more info please post it. I feel for the kid, peace...
WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - April 26, 2006 - A former Widener University chemistry student pleaded guilty in federal court today to charges that he tried to make LSD in an improvised lab at a state park.
The student, 23-year-old Paul Little, told District Judge Joseph Farnan he did it to pay for college. Little says he was having a hard time holding down a job while going to school, and he thought this was the answer to his financial problems.
Little worked part-time at The Nature Center in White Clay Creek State Park and was allowed to live at a farmhouse in the park. He set up a lab in a barn adjacent to the house in June 2005.
Prosecutors say Little found a recipe for the drug online or in a textbook, and had acquired many of the chemicals he needed.
Little, who is originally from upstate New York and had no previous criminal record, faces up to 20 years in jail and a $1 million fine on the charge of manufacturing LSD when Farnan sentences him in July.
