Pair accused of drug-making released
Two young men accused of manufacturing a hallucinogenic drug in a Georgetown dorm room were ordered released Wednesday into the custody of their fathers and were allowed to return to Massachusetts.
Charles Smith, a freshman in Georgetown's School of Foreign Service, and his high school friend, John Perrone, a freshman at the University of Richmond, appeared in U.S. District Court Wednesday.
Prosecutors and their attorneys agreed to forgo a detention hearing, and a judge ordered the two released to await further hearings.
Smith and Perrone, both 18 and 2010 high school classmates from Andover, Mass., were arrested Saturday for allegedly manufacturing the drug DMT in Smith's Georgetown dorm room.
Under the conditions of their release, the two must remain in their homes in Andover under electronic monitoring at night and most seek full time employment or enroll in school during the day.
