Camden Drug Dealer Gets 18 Years in Prison for Heroin Overdose Death

Camden NJ Heroin Distribution LawyersA Camden NJ man was sentenced to nearly two decades behind bars after being convicted on homicide charges related to the drug overdose death of a heroin user.

The suspect is a 24-year-old man from Camden, New Jersey. He was accused of selling a fatal dose of heroin to 42-year-old Daniel Chakov, a Gloucester County man who used the illegal narcotics and later died.

According to Gloucester County prosecutors, the victim went to Camden NJ and bought heroin from the suspect. The victim then traveled to his parents’ residence in Gloucester County and used the drugs.

The suspect was eventually arrested and charged with multiple drug crimes, including possession of heroin with intent to distribute and possession of heroin. Additionally, he was charged with strict liability homicide, a first degree felony that carried severe penalties.

In February 2017, a Gloucester County jury found the suspect guilty on the strict liability homicide charges.

Now the suspect has been formally sentenced in the case. A Gloucester County Superior Court judge recently ordered that the suspect serve 18 years in NJ State Prison. Under the provisions of the NJ No Early Release Act (NERA), the suspect will be required to serve at least 85 percent of his prison sentence before he becomes eligible for release on parole.
