Sell Six Pills and get 135 Years
A Dickenson County jury recommended a sentence of 135 years and a $600,000 fine on Thursday evening for a man they convicted of selling six prescription pills.
"This is the stiffest sentence I’ve heard of anywhere around," said Dickenson County Commonwealth’s Attorney Joe Short. "I think the people of Southwest Virginia are sick and tired of drug addiction, and they’re looking for solutions."(LINK)
Looking for solutions indeed. I cant say this will help the drug problem here, but 22 and a half years per pill will get some attention.
