Sentencing Scheduled In Synthetic Drug Conspiracy

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — One of 15 people to plead guilty in a synthetic drug conspiracy that resulted in the overdose deaths of two teenagers is scheduled to be sentenced in federal court.

Casey Rosen is charged with conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute controlled substances resulting in serious bodily injury and death. He would be the 13th defendant sentenced in the case.

Authorities say Rosen was a partner with Andrew Spofford, who cooked up the chemicals that led to the June 2012 deaths of two teens who lived in the Grand Forks area. Spofford was sentenced earlier to 17 1/2 years in prison.

Investigators have dubbed the case “Operation Stolen Youth.”
