CLIFTON PARK, N.Y. – A 17-year-old Shenedehowa High School student accused of injecting another student with heroin is now headed to a treatment facility.

Daniel Lewis was arrested by State Police for the felony of Criminal injection of a narcotic drug and the misdemeanors of Endangering the Welfare of a Child, two counts of Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the seventh-degree and Possession of a Hypodermic Instrument.

Lewis must serve out the 28 to 30 days of treatment, and if he violates the rules there, he will be dealt with by the county.

He was released in his father's custody and is expected to finish his treatment program in a month.

On December 12, it was reported to the school administration that two students were seen exchanging pills in the school's east locker room. The students were brought to the Class Assistant Principal's office. Upon being questioned, one student reported that they also engaged in the use of liquid heroin.

State Police responded and an investigation revealed that Lewis had injected the student with heroin while at the school. Lewis was found to be in possession of heroin and hypodermic needles.

Lewis is due back in court in February following completion of the program.
