Big Brother’s Matt McDonald pleads guilty to conspiring to distribute drugs

Big Brother 9 houseguest Matt McDonald has pleaded guilty to conspiring to distribute oxycodone as part of a drug ring Adam Jasinski . Matt initially pled not guilty last spring, while Adam, too, changed his original plea and pleaded guilty to possession with intent to distribute.

TMZ reports that Matt “pled guilty to conspiracy to distribute Oxycodone … and now he faces 20 years in prison.” Matt will be sentenced in April; Adam is scheduled to be sentenced today and faces 15 years.

Matt still faces charges after being arrested for punching and trying to strangle his pregnant girlfriend.
