Cal Poly fraternity president pleads no contest to drug charges
February 7, 2015
The former president of Cal Poly’s Delta Sigma Phi fraternity pleaded no contest Friday to charges of felony possession of marijuana for sale.
Gear McMillan, 22, faces a maximum sentence of one year in the San Luis Obispo County Jail. His sentencing hearing is scheduled for April 17.
In September, San Luis Obispo police arrested McMillan for marijuana sales nearly one month after a group of Cal Poly football players allegedly robbed the fraternity’s house.
In August, police arrested five Cal Poly football players for robbing the fraternity house. One of the suspects is accused of holding fraternity members at gunpoint during the incident.
As part of the investigation into the incident, sheriff’s deputies and district attorney’s office investigators searched specific locations at the Delta Sigma Phi fraternity house on California Boulevard. During the search, investigators discovered marijuana.
