Jay Woman Pleads Guilty in Connection to Fatal Overdose
A Jay woman pleaded guilty to drug charges in connection with the overdose death of a Farmington man.
Brittany Boivin, 32, pleaded guilty to a charge of conspiracy to commit unlawful trafficking in scheduled drugs. She was charged for the death of 22-year-old Matthew Adams of Strong, who died of a fatal overdose nearly a year ago. Boivin was accused of providing Adams with fentanyl and cocaine.
The Sun Journal reports text messages were found on Boivin's phone, from Adams, asking her to get $50 dollars' each of heroin and cocaine for him. Those messages were received on March 29th and 30th. Adams was found dead 4 1/2 hours after the last message.
Initially, Boivin denied knowing Adams. But, on Monday, she pleaded guilty to the charges and was sentenced to three years in prison, with all but two months suspended, and two years' probation. Boivin has apologized for her actions and is prepared to pay the consequences.
