2 men arrested in Tempe drug ring are sentenced

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) - Two more members of a drug ring accused of manufacturing and selling ecstasy pills to Arizona State University students have been sentenced.

Maricopa County prosecutor say 20-year-old Andrew Gajkowski was sentenced Monday to one year in prison followed by three years of supervised probation.

They say 19-year-old Edward Ortiz received two years of supervised probation.

Gajkowski and Ortiz both pleaded guilty two months ago to their involvement in the drug ring.

They were among five men arrested in the case last December.

Authorities say Gajkowski was the alleged leader of the ring that pressed pills out of his apartment across from the ASU campus in Tempe.

Two other defendants in the case received probation while the other was sentenced to five months in prison and two years of supervised probation.
