A former Brigham Young University student accused of operating a methamphetamine lab in his university-approved housing has been sentenced to 60 days in jail.
Court records show Bryce Cazier was sentenced Wednesday after he pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of operating a clandestine laboratory in January.
He will report to jail after the semester ends at the community college where he is now enrolled.
Lawyer Jere Reneer maintained the 22-year-old man’s lab setup was used to make soap but conceded his client also had suspicious materials.
KUTV reports that (http://bit.ly/1KU62tF) Cazier’s roommates called police after they saw suspicious equipment while helping him put out a small fire in his room.
He had faced up to 15 years in prison, but prosecutors agreed to recommend jail time instead.
