FAIRFAX CO. – A George Mason University student will spend three years in prison for selling LSD to a fraternity brother who jumped out of a window to his death after taking the drug.

Prosecutors say Alejandro Porrato sold LSD to sophomore and member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Tristan Medina, in September 2017 and the two took the drugs three days later.

Witnesses say Medina, who prosecutors say was under the influence of LSD, began to act strange. At one point, roommates say Medina told a friend “I love you” and ran down the hall and jumped through a fifth-floor window on campus.

In addition to Porrato’s sentence, he must complete 100 hours of community service and active probation.
