Drug Overdose Death Results in 10 Year Prison Sentence
Stillwater, MN (Learfield Wire Services/TTWN Media Networks) -- The alleged drug dealer who provided the heroin that led to the overdose death of an Oakdale man is headed to prison.
The Washington County Attorney's Office says 27-year-old Rodney Williams Junior of Minneapolis received a 122-month sentence Friday. Williams was charged with third-degree murder in the September 2014 overdose death of a 21-year-old from Oakdale. The victim's cause of death was heroin toxicity and police tracked the source of the drug to Williams.
Prosecutor Pete Orput said, “the opiate crisis in this country has claimed another victim. We will not cease in our efforts to hold opiate and other drug dealers accountable for this scourge.”
