Shaker Heights, OH -  A former Dean of Case Western Reserve's Business School, arrested back in September on drug charges, received an 18 month probation on Tuesday as punishment.

Mohsen Anvari, 57, faced up to six months in jail when he pleaded no contest earlier this month. The Court found him guilty of attempted complicity to possess drugs, a misdemeanor.

Anvari served as Dean of the Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University from 2001 and 2004. The former Dean was arrested on Sept. 16 at a motel in Beachwood for trying to purchase 2.4 grams of cocaine.

Judge K.J. Montgomery of Shaker Heights Municipal,  fined Anvari $1,000 and gave him a 174-day suspended jail sentence. Anvari was also handed down counseling for alcoholism and must refrain from drinking or taking non-prescription medication.

Anavari stated that he was embarrassed by his arrest and that he was going home.
