Eugene Smith III, 48, pleaded guilty to two felony counts of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance. The plea agreement calls for a sentence of 15 to 30 months in state prison on each charge, bringing the total amount of state prison time to 2½ to 5 years, followed by probation, restitution, fines, community service and court costs.
Assistant District Attorney Ben Simon said the plea agreement is a result of Smith “cooperating in the investigation and his truthful testimony to the (federal) grand jury.” He basically snitched on everyone and everything!
The charges stem from the death of 24-year-old Elizabeth Arblaster. Police said Smith had sold Arblaster stamp bags containing the highly toxic combination of heroin and fentanyl causing her death.
