FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The last of five people charged with dealing the heroin to a Fargo blues musician who died of an overdose has been sentenced in federal court.
U.S. District Judge Ralph Erickson on Monday sentenced Nicole Wadsworth to more than eight years in prison on a charge of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute a controlled substance.
Wadsworth and four other defendants were originally charged with conspiracy to possess and distribute a controlled substance resulting in death. Those charges were revised after a Supreme Court ruling in January that said prosecutors could not seek that charge without proof that the death resulted from use of the drugs in question.
30-year-old Cody Conner died in June 2012. An autopsy showed that Conner had multiple drugs in his system.
