Jacob Galloway, the roommate of a Concordia University of Wisconsin student who was found dead of an overdose in October 2015, has been sentenced to six months jail time and three years of probation to follow.

Originally, Galloway, 19, was facing three misdemeanor charges and one felony, however, two of the misdemeanors were dismissed by prosecutor's request.  The remaining charges included the felony charge of possession of ecstasy as well as a misdemeanor charge of resisting or obstructing an officer, according to online court records.

Galloway, 19, was found guilty Aug. 15 and it was recommended he get a six-month sentence for the felony charge along with three years of probation as well as seven months in prison for resisting/obstructing an officer, according to court records.

Galloway, who lives in West Des Moines, Iowa, is one of three former Concordia University of Wisconsin students linked with the death of freshman Caleb Ford, 18, who was a graduate of Waukesha West High School.  It was previously reported Ford had struggled with drug addiction since high school, according to his mother.

Shuntaye Crenshaw, the man who allegedly gave Ford the drugs, will be in court for a jury trial Nov. 29, according to online records.  He is facing a charge of first-degree reckless homicide.

A criminal complaint from the time of the incident says Ford and three classmates, one being Galloway, traveled off campus to purchase drugs from Crenshaw.  Galloway said in the complaint he slept in another student's room because he didn't know how the drugs would affect Ford.

The next morning, Ford was found dead.
