NEW YORK (AP) - A 19-year-old man accused of supplying a synthetic hallucinogen that left a Long Island student with severe injuries has been charged with selling other drugs.

Juan Garcia was arraigned Thursday on charges of criminal sale and possession of a controlled substance.

Prosecutors say Garcia went to the campus of Stony Brook University in August because “his client base” lived there.

He allegedly sold a new drug, Nbome, not classified as a controlled substance to some students. Prosecutors say all but Sergio Jimenez who suffered a seizure, spit out the pill.

Jimenez’s father tells Newsday (https://nwsdy.li/1ECi9Ix ) his son is hospitalized with brain damage.

Garcia hasn’t been charged with the sale of NBbome. But he’s accused of selling a hallucinogenic mushroom to an undercover officer.

He’s pleaded not guilty. His lawyer says he didn’t sell drugs.
