Just weeks before graduation, a West Point cadet and former Army Football player has been dismissed for dealing drugs at the academy.

On Monday, the U.S. Military Academy sentenced Tevin Long of Richmond, TX to 30 days confinement and forfeiture of pay, for selling prescription pills at West Point, reports the Associated Press. Long was also booted from the academy. His class graduates next month.

Long was one of seven cadets accused of dealing cocaine, oxycodone, oxymorphone and/or alprazolam. They allegedly purchased drugs in Newburgh, or other surrounding areas and brought the drugs back to West Point in 2015 and 2016.

During three seasons, Long appeared in 24 games on defense for Army football.

Last month, Ammon Tuimaunei, another West Point cadet and a former Army football player, was charged with five violations for possessing and selling cocaine and Oxycodone and two violations for conspiracy with intent to distribute cocaine and Oxycodone.
