BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) - A man has pleaded guilty to his role in the January overdose death of a Montana State University student at a Bozeman music venue.

The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports (bit.ly/2h0eYGH) Geoffrey Qualls pleaded guilty Monday to felony criminal possession of dangerous drugs for sharing a powerful synthetic drug that caused the death of 20-year-old Natalie Dietrich. Qualls needed medical help after ingesting the drug.

Prosecutors plan to recommend a two-year deferred sentence and community service when Qualls is sentenced on Jan. 23.

Another man, Daniel McGrail, has pleaded not guilty to felony criminal distribution of dangerous drugs.

Qualls has said McGrail gave him the drugs. Qualls said he and Dietrich went into a bathroom and took one snort of the drug and he didn’t remember what happened after that.
