NH woman responsible for teen's overdose death has sentencing postponed again
CONCORD — A woman responsible for the overdose death of a 17-year-old Rochester girl has had her sentencing delayed yet again.
Court documents said that Leslie Aberle's sentencing hearing set for Thursday was postponed because her counsel was sick with the flu and unable to make it to court. Aberle, 32, of Salisbury, Mass., plead guilty to giving drugs to Evangelique "Eve" Tarmey, which caused her death back in 2015.
Aberle was initially scheduled to be sentenced Jan. 3, which was postponed to Jan. 24.
Her sentencing hearing was postponed several more times because of her part in an unresolved criminal case out of Portsmouth.
Aberle pleaded guilty last year to aiding and abetting the distribution of fentanyl that killed Tarmey in Rochester. Tarmey's mother, Jazzmyn Rood, and her mother's boyfriend, Mark Ross, already have been sentenced to prison. Prosecutors said Aberle and Ross drove with Tarmey to Massachusetts to buy heroin, which later was found to be fentanyl.
