1 dies from overdose, dealer faces over 10 years in prison

If you're accused of drug crimes, then you know it takes a strong defense to help you get through the case with the least amount of damage to your reputation and freedom. Sometimes, you can show your humanity in hopes of receiving a lighter sentence, especially if your situation involves a death.

Take, for example, the story of a dealer who took the time to warn a buyer that the drugs being sold were much stronger than normal. The Dec. 6 report stated that the buyer purchased heroin from a dealer. His mother, who discovered him dead in her home, also found a message sent to his Facebook account. The dealer stated that she was supposed to cut the heroin with another substance, but she didn't. She warned him that she thought it contained fentanyl.

The unfortunate reality, in this case, is that the fentanyl led to an overdose that there was no recovering from. The young man, only 24, died of the lethal dose. Months later, the dealer faced charges for second-degree murder.

Authorities are beginning to charge dealers for murder when their buyers wind up dead from overdoses. In this case, the dealer doesn't think she should remain behind bars for life. Perhaps in agreement, the court allowed a plea deal. She'd face around 10 years in prison for involuntary manslaughter and drug distribution charges.

Drug charges are hard to deal with, but it's not impossible to obtain a good plea deal or support for your case. The right help makes a difference when you're accused of a crime.
