MERCER, Pa. (WKBN) – A woman found guilty of selling drugs to a Mercer woman who died of an overdose received a lengthy prison sentence on Friday.

A jury found her guilty of drug delivery resulting in death; aggravated assault; criminal use of communication facility; manufacture, delivery, or possession with intent to manufacture or deliver, all felony charges; and misdemeanor charges of simple assault and recklessly endangering another person.

Robinson was charged after the 32-year-old victim was found dead in a house in Coolspring Township in June of 2019. The Mercer County Coroner’s Office determined that she died of a drug overdose.

Pennsylvania State Police said an investigation determined that Robinson was the one who sold the drugs to the victim.
