A warning for drug dealers

A drug dealer is going to prison for three years after one of his customers overdosed and died in 2013.

28 year old Richard Valiquette was convicted of criminal negligence for selling a designer drug to 17 year old Gavin Adams, whose body was discovered partly buried by snow two days after he disappeared.

Justice Frederick Ferguson noted Adams death pre-dates the current epidemic of overdose deaths spreading across the country. But if that trend continues he said judges may need to hand out stiffer punishments.
