The man accused of selling drugs to a 14-year-old girl who later overdosed was in court Monday.
Eric Stone was arrested back in 2013 as part of a police investigation following the death of Hanna Bruch.
Police said Bruch and two friends purchased drugs, and took them before attending a foam party at Expo New Mexico. Bruch collapsed during the party and later died.
On Monday, Stone agreed to a plea deal. He pleaded guilty to one count of attempted distribution of a controlled substance to a minor.
Stone’s attorney said Stone never admitted to selling drugs to the teens, and his client has been cooperative with police throughout the entire process.
He also said the plea has nothing to do with Bruch’s death, which occurred weeks after Stone had contact with the teens.
He faces a maximum of three years in prison. A sentencing date has not been set.
