As we reported, Big Brother winner, Adam Jasinski, got in trouble with the law a few months ago when it came to light that he was trying to sell drugs.Â Â Yesterday we found out that he is being jailed for another reason entirely!Â Find out what happened to send Adam Jasinski to jail.Â Â
The 2008 winner of season nine of the CBS reality show Big Brother recently plead guilty in Boston Federal Court to a drug charge for failing to pay taxes on his Big Brother winnings, which totaled $500,000.Â He was caught in a sting earlier this year in a drug bust when he tried to sell pills to an informant working for the Drug Enforcement Agency.
The AP reported yesterday, “Adam Jasinski, of Delray Beach, Florida was arrested outside Boston last October and charged with attempting to sell 2,000 pills of oxycodone, the main active ingredient in OxyContin and other painkillers.Â He originally plead guilty during a hearing Monday in U.S. District Court in Boston.Â He also pleaded guilty to the tax charge, which was added Monday by prosecutors.”
According to Jasinski’s attorney, he has been in rehab and is drug-free.Â Jasinski is facing a January 11th sentencing date.Â The court officers immediately took him to jail after court appearance.Â He could face up to 14 years for the drug conviction.Â He also could face a one-year maximum prison term for the tax charge.Â
He will face a tough DEA, who claims that Jasinski used part of his Big Brother winnings to finance his drug dealing business.Â Jasinski admitted this was true at the time of his arrest.Â Unfortunately for Jasinski, the drama doesn’t just stay on the cameras at the Big Brother House,Â and staying out of jail may be tougher than winning the show itself!
