A Connecticut woman who pleaded guilty earlier this year to her role in the overdose death of a 17-year-old girl in a motel room is headed to prison.
The U.S. Attorney's office says 43-year-old Adele Bouthillier, of Groton, was sentenced Tuesday in Hartford federal court to four years behind bars for charges of sex trafficking and heroin distribution.
Police say the teen had been found unresponsive of a suspected heroin overdose at a Groton motel on May 29, 2016. She was taken to the hospital where she was later pronounced dead.
Gomez pleaded guilty last November and awaits sentencing.
