LOGAN—Jordan S. Allred pleaded guilty to drug charges Tuesday afternoon in 1st District Court. Allred, 24, pleaded guilty to four third-degree felony charges of obtaining prescriptions under false pretenses from May 13 and July 8, 2010.

Judge Thomas Willmore asked Allred if he wanted a preliminary hearing. “The purpose of a preliminary hearing is to make sure you have not been wrongfully accused,” Willmore explained.

Allred declined a preliminary hearing and entered a plea agreement on the charges.

Prosecuting attorney Barbara Lachmar said Allred stole prescription pads from the Wellness Center at Utah State University. He then went to local pharmacies like Walgreens and filled prescriptions for oxycontin and other narcotics.

Allred, a USU student who works at the campus radio station, was ordered to report to jail Nov. 19 at noon. He will be eligible for the work and school release program and has 23 days to serve in the county jail.
