U.S. District Judge Leo T. Sorokin has denied a motion to release the Big Brotherninth-season winner, who was arrested earlier this month for attempting to sell 2,000 oxycodone pills as part of a drug trafficking operation he allegedly operated, E! News reported Friday.
"He is detained," court clerk Maria Simeone told E! News.
"[Sorokin] determined that the government had met its burden of proof based on the evidence and that the defendant posed a risk of flight."
The 31-year-old Delray Beach, FL resident was arrested on October 17 after flying to Boston and attempting to sell the drugs to a Drug Enforcement Administration witness.
According to an affidavit DEA Special Agent Todd Prough filed, the witness -- reportedly a local drug dealer who had been arrested earlier this month -- met Jasinski at Logan International Airport and then drove to a North Reading, MA strip mall where DEA agents arrested Jasinski after he pulled the pills from a sock stuffed in his pants.
The witness set up the drug buy via an October 8 phone call to Jasinski, according to the affidavit, which added Jasinski stated he had used his $500,000 Big Brother cash prize to bankroll his drug dealing and boasted that he has been "obtaining thousands of pills of oxycodone" which he's sold "to customers all along the East Coast" during the few several months.
Jasinski was charged with possession of oxycodone pills with intent to distribute and faces a maximum of 20 years in jail and a $1 million fine if convicted.
Jasinski's next court date is still unknown, E! News reported.
