The Herald of Everett is reporting that a Puyallup teenager who supplied drugs to another teen who later died of an overdose has been sentenced to two years in juvenile detention.
The Herald said Donalydia Huertas, 19, who was convicted of second-degree manslaughter after jurors disagreed on a first-degree manslaughter charge, was found culpable in the death of her friend, Danielle McCarthy, 16, in 2007. She was sentenced in Snohomish County Superior Court this afternoon.
Huertas provided McCarthy with the drug Ecstasy and failed to get medical help for her when she began to show signs of having overdosed. McCarthy was eventually taken to Stevens Hospital in Edmonds, where she was pronounced dead.
