KINGSTON, N.Y. (AP) – A 25-year-old Hudson Valley woman has accepted a plea deal in the drug-overdose death of a 15-year-old boy.
Lindsey Latourette of Saugerties (SAW-gehr-teez) pleaded guilty Wednesday in the death of 15-year-old Evan Wisniewski. She had rejected the plea deal three weeks ago but changed her mind.
Her guilty plea will give her the original plea deal, which called for 1 1/2 to four years in state prison. Latourette pleaded guilty to criminally negligent homicide, rape and criminal sale of a controlled substance, all felonies.
Investigators found that Latourette raped Wisniewski and gave him a fatal dose of methadone in 2008.
