A Kansas University student accused of running a fake-ID outfit will stand trial, a Douglas County District Court judge ruled Wednesday.

Judge Michael Malone bound John Jay Pickard over for trial for dealing in false IDs.

The 20-year-old is accused of running the operation from April 1-18 at the Phi Kappa Tau fraternity.

Police say they traced a fake driver's license they confiscated from a Jayhawk Cafe patron to Pickard this spring.

Executing a search warrant, police seized ID manufacturing equipment and at least one dozen nearly completed fake driver's licenses.

Pickard's trial was scheduled for Nov. 22.

Meanwhile, Daniel Sailler, a 19-year-old KU student who faces the same charges, is scheduled for a plea hearing today in Malone's courtroom.

Police say Sailler dealt bogus IDs out of his room at the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity.
