PROVO, Utah -- BYU student Bryce Cazier, who is accused of producing methamphetamine in his university-contracted apartment, pleaded guilty before a Fourth District Court Wednesday morning.

Judge Lynn Davis and the court accepted the plea deal and amended charges to a second-degree felony.

The judge ordered the defendant to report to Adult Probation and Parole within 24 hours.

The defense attorney said Cazier will be in rehab until his scheduled sentencing date of March 25.

According to Provo Police, his roommate reported suspicious activity to management at Riviera Apartments when there was a small fire in Cazier's room. Cazier then turned himself in.

If convicted, Cazier faces up to 15 years in prison.
