CR Man Pleads Guilty in Heroin Death
CEDAR RAPIDS, IA (AP) -- The U.S. Attorney's Office says a Cedar Rapids man has pleaded guilty to supplying heroin to someone who was found dead the next day.
The office announced Friday that 24-year-old Austin Allen Martens pleaded guilty Monday to distribution of heroin and admitted to supplying $80 worth of heroin to another person in March 2013. That person was found dead the next day after overdosing on the heroin provided by Martens.
U.S. District Court Judge Linda R. Reade will set a sentencing date later. Martens remains jailed.
Martens could be sentenced to up to 20 years in prison with a $1 million fine.
