Penn Township woman to serve up to 30 years in prison for drug delivery resulting in death, her 16th criminal conviction
LANCASTER COUNTY, Pa.– A Penn Township woman will serve up to 30 years in prison after selling fentanyl that caused a man’s death in 2017.
Justina Heisey, 58, was sentenced to spend 14-30 years in prison after being convicted at trial in March of felony drug delivery resulting in death charges.
On December 15, 2017, Heisey delivered a bundled of heroin to a 48-year-old Manheim man who overdosed and died.
Assistant District Attorney Barry Goldman called Heisey a career criminal who will never stop disobeying the law. It was noted that this is her 16th separate criminal conviction, that dates back to 30-years-ago.
It includes a manslaughter conviction regarding a fatal DUI crash in Juniata County, striking a boy with a vehicle while he was getting off the school bus, and a batch of retail thefts in Lancaster County.
Police noted that the jury only deliberated for 15 minutes before deciding Heisey’s case.
Now, she will serve time.
