Alleged drug dealers charged with overdose deaths

People accused of selling drugs in California may find themselves receiving criminal charges for the overdose deaths of their alleged customers. New 'drug delivery resulting in death" laws are becoming more common in many states. In places like Ohio, Pennsylvania and Michigan, alleged drug dealers can face severe penalties for selling drugs to a person who goes on to fatally overdose

Why plea bargains are offered

When California residents are facing criminal charges, it is possible their cases will be resolved through the plea bargaining process. With a plea bargain, the defendant often will agree to plead guilty to a lesser charge or in exchange for dismissal of additional charges. Often, the possible sentence faced will be much less than what would have been the case had the trial proceeded.

This reflects a significant rise in opiate abuse across the country that prompted President Obama to call for a stronger effort to prevent trafficking of heroin in the Northeast in August.
