'Big Brother' Star Pleads Guilty to Drug Ring Charge

1/10/2011 6:57 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

"Big Brother 9" star Matthew McDonald just pled guilty to conspiracy to distribute Oxycodone in connection with the giant drug ring allegedly founded by his BB co-star ... and now he faces 20 years in prison.

As we first reported, McDonald was arrested last April -- and indicted for allegedly participating in a drug ring masterminded by Season 9 winner Adam Jasinski ... who cops claim used his $500,000 winnings to finance the entire operation.

McDonald's sentencing is scheduled for April. He will remain in custody until then.

But that's not all -- you may recall, McDonald has another case pending ... in which the ex-reality star is accused of beating the crap out of his pregnant GF. No es bueno.

That was a horrible season for BB. Most of the HGs were unsavory to say the least.

Lori-It was Adam who used his winnings to start this drug ring. Not Matt.

This isn't state charges! He's a non-violent offender on a federal rap, so he's going to a minmum security club fed.

California Celebrity Justice

I can't imagine be poor or a minority and watching this sh*t go down, but it's they believe they're getting screwed then they should get off their lazy butts and vote the judges out, otherwise... they'll keep making them bend over... to prove they're TOUGH ON CRIME
