(New Westminster Police)

B.C. youth sentenced for selling fatal dose of MDMA to girl, 13

Sale was made at a New Westminster SkyTrain station in 2017

The youth who sold the party drugs that led to the fatal overdose of a 13-year-old Port Coquitlam girl has been sentenced to open custody, community supervision and intensive support.

The offender will be placed in a youth custody centre under open custody, meaning he is not considered a high risk, for four months, New Westminster police said Thursday.

He will then be under community supervision for two months, following by intensive support and supervision for 18 months.

The youth, who cannot be named, pleaded guilty back in September 2018 to selling a fatal dose of the illicit drug MDMA to two teens at the 22nd Street Skytrain Station in New Westminster in July 2017.

The teens were returning home when the 13-year-old girl died of an overdose.
