NH man sentenced in connection with fentanyl distribution causing death
CONCORD — A Kingston man was sentenced Monday to 12 years in federal prison for distributing fentanyl.
According to court documents, in June of last year Kenneth Chapman, 60, sold a quantity of fentanyl to "M.S." a 31-year-old male from Atkinson. Due to a 911 call the following morning, emergency personnel responded to an Atkinson residence where they found M.S. dead from a suspected drug overdose. In close proximity to the body, officers found a tied-off plastic bag containing a white powdery substance that was later determined to be fentanyl.
An autopsy determined M.S.' death to be caused by acute fentanyl intoxication.
Chapman, who pleaded guilty, will be on supervised release for three years after serving his sentence.
