POWELL, Wyo. (AP) - A 29-year-old Powell man has been given a three- to five-year prison sentence for his role in his friend’s fatal drug overdose.

The Powell Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1xf6SgH ) Adam Mangold was sentenced on March 18 for felony delivery of a controlled substance and misdemeanor count of criminally negligent homicide.

Prosecutors say 25-year-old Bryson Herdt of Powell died of an overdose after using a painkilling patch that Mangold gave him in December 2013.

Park County prosecutors sought an eight- to 10-year sentence noting repeated violations involving controlled substances.

Defense attorney Nick Beduhn sought a probationary sentence, arguing Mangold suffers continuing medical complications from a 2005 motorcycle crash that left him paralyzed from the waist down.

District Judge Steven Cranfill noted Mangold had been on probation 11 times before, without success.
