EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (AP) — A Minnesota man will serve 18 months in prison for supplying drugs that led to the overdose death of a 22-year-old Eau Claire woman last summer.

Twenty-nine-year-old Craig Harp of Red Wing, Minn., was sentenced Tuesday on a felony count of delivery of a narcotic drug.

The Leader-Telegram reports Eau Claire County Judge Lisa Stark ordered Harp to spend four years on extended supervision after he’s released from prison.

Harp’s co-defendant, 22-year-old Ashley Stock of Elk Mound, will be sentenced on the same felony charge Aug. 11.

According to the criminal complaint, Niccole Henning was found dead last Aug. 9 in an apartment. An autopsy found she died from mixed-drug toxicity after taking morphine and an anti-anxiety drug.

    My personal opinion regarding sellers paying the price for a persons death is unfair. Im an adult who has never used drugs,and doesnt approve of them.Where is the personal responsibility in this and other situations of drug deaths? No one forced these individuals to partake in drug useage. No one forced them to buy the preferred drug. These individuals make the decision to use knowing the consequences that go along with that useage. How many young peoples lives does it have to take to make them see this could very likely be their destiny also? Surely, many have lost close friends or acqauintances due to drug overdose! If this seller hadnt provided the buyer with the requested supply, you and I know darn well, the buyer would just call on another dealer. Again, their decision. When one decides to play dangerously, they are the responsible person making the choice. Everyone has choices to make, if we make the wrong one, it may or may not affect anothers life. This gal made her choice and paid the consequence for that decision. I feel badly for her family for their loss, but have no sympathy for this girl who didnt value life enough to quit, or seek help. As a parent there is no way Id want someone providing my son/daughter with drugs to be prosecuted for my childs death. If my kid was that damned stupid to use, they desserve the consequence of their decision. Any prosection of the seller should relate to selling the drug itself. Its time kids take responsibilty for their decisions instead of blaming everyone else.
