Nice sentenced to six years

ST. CLAIRSVILLE – Kayla Nice, 23, 115 Hersey Road, Cadiz, was sentenced Friday before Common Pleas Court Judge Frank Fregiato. She had pleaded guilty to corrupting another with drugs, a felony of the second degree occurring May 15, 2013. Prosecutor Dan Fry said she had given heroin to a 17-year-old in Pease Township who later overdosed. Investigators and the victim’s family agreed to a recommendation of six years, which Fregiato accepted.

“There is a lack of proof as to whether or not this defendant’s actions caused the death of this 17-year-old victim, and either way, that’s not and was never part of this case,” he said.
