BOSTON (AP) Adam Jasinski, the winner of the CBS reality show "Big Brother 9," has pleaded guilty to a drug charge and to failing to file a tax return for the year he won the $500,000 prize.
Adam Jasinski pleaded guilty Monday to both charges in U.S. District Court in Boston. Sentencing is scheduled for Jan. 11, but Jasinski was immediately handcuffed and taken into custody to begin serving his time.
The 32-year-old Jasinski was arrested outside Boston last October and charged with possession with intent to distribute oxycodone, the main active ingredient in OxyContin and other painkillers.
He had previously pleaded not guilty.
In 2008, Jasinski won $500,000 on "Big Brother," the reality series featuring contestants who live under constant surveillance and vote once a week to evict each other.
