Injecting a 13-Year-Old with Heroin
A 24-year-old man accused of injecting a 13-year-old with the heroin that caused him to overdose and die at a sleepover was sentenced to 14 years in state prison. He first injected himself and his younger stepbrother’s 13-year-old friend with heroin during a sleepover. Prosecutors said he did not call for help until eight hours after the teen began convulsing. It is a tragedy that not only did he actually administered a deadly dose of the heroin, but he let the boy suffer.
