Another Main Line drug ring defendant pleaded guilty in Montgomery County Common Pleas Court as part of a deal with prosecutors.

Christian Euler, 23, of Villanova, pleaded guilty Wednesday in front of Judge Steven T. O'Neill to three misdemeanor charges - one each of knowingly receiving a controlled substance (formally known as receipt in commerce), drug possession, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Euler is the fifth of nine adult defendants to reach plea agreements with the District Attorney's Office. The deals include possibly testifying against codefendants, particularly alleged ringleaders Neil K. Scott and Timothy C. Brooks.

Felony charges against Euler will be dropped after sentencing, which has not yet been set, said Assistant District Attorney Jason Whalley. None of the agreements include reduced sentences.

In April, authorities busted up an operation that sold drugs, mainly marijuana, to students at elite high schools and colleges in the region.

Court records say Scott sold marijuana to Euler, who was attending Lafayette College. Euler then dealt it to other students at the school. Defense attorney Nathan J. Schadler could not be reached for comment.
