Waterloo Man Pleads Guilty in Heroin Death
WATERLOO, Iowa - A Waterloo man has pleaded guilty to a federal heroin charge stemming from the overdose death of another man.
The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier says 45-year-old Lewis Bolden pleaded guilty to conspiracy to deliver 100 grams of more of heroin while having a prior felony drug conviction. Bolden faces up to the life in prison and an $8 million fine at sentencing.
Bolden and two others were charged following the November 2011 overdose death of Tai-Lin Phillips, of Waterloo.
The others, Mark Wilson-Bey, of Calumet City, Ill., and VonVetta Sawyers, of Waterloo, already pleaded guilty to federal drug charges.
Authorities say they were involved in an agreement to distribute heroin between 2007 and 2011.
