CONCORD, N.H. — A man has been sentenced in New Hampshire to 11 years in federal prison after pleading guilty to lawful distribution of fentanyl.
Court documents say 24-year-old Dennis Higgins, formerly of Hudson, New Hampshire, sold fentanyl to a 22-year-old woman from Kittery, Maine. The next morning, emergency personnel received a 911 call and found the woman dead from a suspected drug overdose and determined it was fentanyl.
A subsequent investigation developed evidence that Higgins had distributed fentanyl to the woman. Higgins pleaded guilty to drug distribution in May.
