Synthetic Drug Sentence

Nov 27, 2012 at 7:07 am

     A Manvel high school student has been sentenced to 12 1/2 years for his role in a synthetic drug ring that resulted in the apparent overdoses and deaths of two teens.
 
     18-year-old Wesley Sweeney pleaded guilty in August to conspiracy to distribute drugs that resulted in death.
 
     Prosecutors say he purchased the hallucinogens in June and gave them to 18-year-old Christian Bjerk who was found dead the next day.
 
      Prosecutors say 22-year-old Andrew Spofford made the drugs after ordering chemicals from overseas.  Spofford pleaded guilty last month. He'll be sentenced next year.
