    Rochester, N.Y. – A man has pleaded guilty to criminally negligent homicide and other charges in connection with a fatal overdose in Brockport.

    In addition to the criminally negligent homicide charge, 22-year-old Raymond Martinez pleaded guilty to two counts of criminal sale of a controlled substance in the third degree.

    Investigators say Martinez sold drugs to the victim, Alan Crawford. Crawford was found dead in a Brockport hotel room. They say he died from an overdose of a mix of heroin and fentanyl.

    In a statement released Friday, Monroe County District Attorney Sandra Doorley said, “This is yet another example that if you sell narcotics that result in an overdose, you will be prosecuted for a homicide. It is our goal to bring drug dealers to justice, and conducting thorough investigations that lead to homicide charges is a small way we can help in the fight against this epidemic. We hope that this will send a message to other drug dealers that we will hold them accountable for promoting these life threatening opioids in our community.”

    Martinez is scheduled to be sentenced in February 2019.
