Michael Gould, a chemistry student at Georgetown College charged with intent to manufacture ecstasy, pleaded guilty to two lesser charges Monday in federal court.

Gould, arrested on Halloween for importing safrole to manufacture MDMA or ecstasy in a lab found in the basement of Deborah Gould, his mother, at 5225 U.S. 421 north, was released into her custody in November on a $10,000 bond.

Michael Gould was also originally charged with use of the mails to commit a drug felony, use of a computer to facilitate a felony offense, possession of methamphetamine and manufacturing and possessing marijuana.

Gould was placed on an electronic monitoring device and allowed to continue attending classes at Georgetown pending trial.

According to the terms of Gould’s agreement filed Monday, he pleaded guilty to attempting to import a List 1 chemical, Safrole, without registration as required by federal law and that he did manufacture and grow a marijuana plant, a Schedule 1 controlled substance.
