Teen girl convicted of dosing friend with ecstasy in candy prank
The court in The Hague convicted a 17 year old girl from Gouda on Thursday for dosing an unsuspecting classmate with ecstasy. She was sentenced to 90 days in juvenile detention, 75 of which conditionally suspended, and 120 hours of community service. She must also pay 1,245.09 in compensation to the victim, AD reports. The two girls ran into each other on a night out in Gouda. The suspect gave the victim a piece of "candy", which she immediately swallowed thinking it was a mint. Immediately after the victim swallowed the pill, the suspect started laughing and told her it was ecstasy. The victim tried to spit it out, but failed. In the following days she started experiencing side effects and ended up in the hospital for five days. Tests from a urine sample showed that the pil contained dangerous amounts of the substance MDMA. The suspect continually denied giving the victim the ecstasy. But the Prosecutor had a recorded conversation with another school mate in which she admitted doing so as evidence and the court found her guilty. As the teenager already spent 15 days in custody, she does not have to go back to juvenile detention.
