A 30-year-old Hanover Park man was sentenced to six years in prison for delivery of heroin, according to a news release from McHenry County State’s Attorney Patrick Kenneally sent Monday.
In August 2017, Patrick Milton delivered heroin to Jessica D. Chapman of McHenry, the release said. Chapman is accused of then delivering the heroin to 28-year-old Michael Roach of McHenry, who overdosed.
Autopsy results show that Roach died on Aug. 31, 2017, from a combination of hydrocodone, heroin and fentanyl, police said. Chapman is accused of delivering Roach between 1 and 15 grams of heroin, according to a complaint.
Chapman pleaded guilty to drug-induced homicide charges related to Roach’s death in August 2018. She remained in the McHenry County Jail Monday afternoon, online jail records show.
Milton was initially charged with drug-induced homicide, and he could have faced six to 30 years in prison if convicted. That charge has since been dismissed, online court records show.
The case was investigated by members of the McHenry Police Department. The case was prosecuted by Michael Combs and Kyle Bruett of the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office.
