A 22-year-old man accused of selling drug-filled brownies that got 10 high school students sick rejected a plea deal offered by prosecutors on Tuesday.
A Miami-Dade Circuit Court judge set a trial date of July 29 for Dionisio Lockridge.
Lockridge was charged on April 11 with possession of marijuana with intent to sell, possession of marijuana, possession of cocaine, and possession of a controlled substance (Xanax).
Lockridge admitted to selling the brownies for $12 apiece to a teenager who attends Braddock High School, according to the arrest affidavit. Lockridge told police the brownies were cooked with K2 Spice, a psychoactive drug made of herbs and synthetic chemicals that mimics the effects of marijuana.
The teenager who bought the brownies gave them to his girlfriend, one of the ten students at Miami Coral Park Senior High School who was transported to Kendall Regional Medical Center and Miami Children's Hospital as a precaution after eating the brownies, said police. The students reportedly ate the brownies off campus before classes started.
Prosecutors said Lockridge showed police where the brownies were cooked and where he had other drugs and cash.
