Teen facing drug possession, manslaughter for fake LSD death

A 17-year-old Kansas girl is facing serious criminal charges after reportedly selling a deadly imitation drug to a local high school student. The Riverside teen is accused of manslaughter in connection with the incident, and it appears that she might face additional charges for drug possession and related violations. The girl is currently being held on a $25,000 bond after the death of the 14-year-old boy.

Authorities report that the older teen knew the dangers of the drug; in fact, she personally knew other people who had died from consuming the fake version of LSD. Still, investigators found out that the young woman refused to inform her customer about the potential dangers of the drug, which she refused to consume. She claims that the effects of the drug were so violent that she was not interested in its use.

This is not the first time that the young woman has faced legal consequences related to illegal substances. She and another teen had faced charges of delivery of an imitation controlled substance. She was also charged with drug possession, along with allegations related to drug paraphernalia. It appears that those allegations were previously issued in connection with the younger teen's death. The parties responsible for the drug manufacturing are also in legal trouble, as officers seized more than 1,800 units of imitation LSD from a Kansas City home.

The manslaughter charges stem from the drug sale in October; responders found the younger teen unresponsive in a Parkville neighborhood on Oct. 4. The teen was quickly transferred to a local hospital, but treatment came too late, and he perished from consuming the drug.

This teen is facing manslaughter charges in conjunction with alleged drug offenses. Juvenile cases require an attorney who is well-versed in law that relates to those under the age of 18. Teens who are facing drug charges - and their families - may benefit from consulting a qualified Kansas attorney, who can help them learn more about their legal rights in a juvenile courtroom.
