Guilty: Oxycodone Resulted In Overdose Death
—Judy McIntosh of Breathitt County, Kentucky Illegally Distributing Drugs—

April 9 (London, KY)— A woman from Breathitt County, Kentucky, who admitted her role in the prescription drug overdose death of a woman will face at least 20 years in federal prison when she is sentenced in July.

Judy McIntosh, 47, pled guilty March 28 to distribution of Oxycodone that resulted in death. She also pled guilty to a conspiracy charge.

This case marks the first prosecution by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Eastern District of Kentucky charging a person with causing a death by distributing prescription medications. The Eastern District of Kentucky consists of 67 counties stretching from the Tennessee border to the Ohio border.

According to the plea agreement, on October 2, 2010, a woman received a quantity of Oxycodone pills from McIntosh, consumed the pills, and later died at McIntosh’s home. The medical examiner’s report confirmed the cause of death was from an Oxycodone overdose.

“Federal law provides that anyone who illegally distributes drugs, the use of which results in death or serious bodily injury shall receive a prison sentence of not less than 20 years and up to life,” said the Eastern District’s U.S. Attorney Kerry B. Harvey.“We intend to use every tool at our disposal and punish those who illegally distribute prescription drugs. This case should serve as a warning to those seeking to profit from illegally distributing these powerful drugs.”

McIntosh also admitted that between August 2010 and June 2011, she conspired with others to distribute Oxycodone in Lee and Breathitt Counties.

Kerry B. Harvey, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Kentucky, Robert L. Corso, Special Agent in Charge of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and Karen Kelley, President of Operation UNITE jointly made the announcement.

The investigation was conducted by DEA and Operation UNITE. The U.S. Attorney’s Office was represented by Assistant United States Attorney Jason D. Parman.

McIntosh will appear in Federal court in London, Kentucky, for sentencing on July 25, 2012. The maximum penalty for the offense is life in prison. The court must consider the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and the Federal statute governing the imposition of sentences before issuing a sentence.

Breathitt woman to be sentenced for causing overdose death
Herald-Leader Staff Report
Posted: 11:13am on Apr 9, 2012; Modified: 9:59am on Apr 10, 2012

A Breathitt County woman will be sentenced in July for causing another woman's oxycodone-overdose death, the U.S. attorney's office said Monday.

Judy McIntosh, 47, pleaded guilty March 28 to distribution of the prescription drug, resulting in death. She also pleaded guilty to conspiracy, according to Kerry B. Harvey, U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Kentucky.

A judge could sentence McIntosh to 20 years or more in federal prison. McIntosh's sentencing hearing is July 25 in U.S. District Court in London.

On Oct. 2, 2010, Ashley Ritchie received some oxycodone from McIntosh, according to McIntosh's plea agreement. Ritchie consumed the pills and later died at McIntosh's home.

"Federal law provides that anyone who illegally distributes drugs, the use of which results in death or serious bodily injury, shall receive a prison sentence of not less than 20 years and up to life," Harvey said in a news release. "We intend to use every tool at our disposal and punish those who illegally distribute prescription drugs. This case should serve as a warning to those seeking to profit from illegally distributing these powerful drugs."

McIntosh also admitted that she conspired to distribute oxycodone in Lee and Breathitt counties between August 2010 and June 2011.

About time they start holding people accountable but how did they know that is where she got the stuff? How can anyone prove this kind of thing? I know someone who died in a car accident and I think they had been some place to get something so can they be held liable too?

What about the doctor that prescribed the meds. Why was she not tested to see if she was taking her pain meds.That is suppose to happen doctors should be brought up on charges to.What i don't understand is how they get the pain meds so easy and someone that needs them has to go threw hell to get help. Just what the hell are they tellin their doctors they have cancer where are their mri's,labs etc.

Many sellers are on State medical care so we who work actually pay for the program through which they get their drugs to sell. Phyisicians are supposed to test but I don't know what the regulations are as to how often aand so forth. Regardless, the supplier bears the primary responsibility in this case. May many more go down just as this woman did and serve many years for the murders they have committed and the lives they have destroyed. No mercy for the drug dealers.

I really like the way they worded this article.
Breathitt woman to be sentenced for CAUSING overdose death and Ritchie received some oxycodone.

Sorry, that just doesn't sit well with me. A drug addict bought drugs, took too much, overdosed and died. My heart goes out to the family of this woman. It is a very sad situation but saying a woman CAUSED the overdose of another is like saying Philip Morris caused smoker related deaths or Mcdonald's causes heart attacks. A person should be held accountable for their OWN choices. That woman that was sentenced should have been charged with drug trafficing, nothing more. IMO

THIS WOMAN COMMITTED MURDER..........she supplied pills to a young woman who subsequently died. That is murder. Our area of the state has become a cesspool of drug dealers who feel no guilt for the pain they cause and the murders they commit. Judy McIntosh deserves the maximum sentence and hopefully she has seared into her mind the face of the young woman she killed. Hopefully every time she goes to sleep, she sees that face looking back at her. No punishment can bring life back but perhaps it will save another. Regardless of the circumstances, this woman is a killer and deserves to be punished. Each person who knows a dealer should contact the US Attorney General referred to in this article and give them the information. We each should feel an obligagation to lock up these people. They make a mockery of life and it is time they answer for the crimes they have committed and the lives they have destroyed. Lock her up and don't let her out.

People that know should come forth and contact the US Attorney General listed in this article. Stand up and take control of the situation. Some are commonly known.

Wonder if they are going to start putting beer makers and alcohol makers in jail too! I think they should because this too has taken a lot of lives of people who didn't make a bad decision. They weren't given a choice.

When you really think about it,you are exactly right.We have a God given right to make our own choices. Being a drug addict the woman would have gotten them else where if this woman hadnt had sold them to her.Maybe the family doesnt look at it that way but really and truthfully,that the only way to look at the situation!

There seems to be some support for Judy McIntosh and I find that difficult to understand. She killed someone and maybe more than one. How long was the girl dead in her house? How does she sleep? How many people agree she should be put away for the longest possible time? How many believe that many more should follow closely behind her? Let's lock them up and throw away the key.
SAVE MORE LIVES !!!!!!!!!!REPORT THE DEALERS TODAY!!!!!!!!!!

We all pretty much know who the dealers are and can report them but without evidence ( recorded on tape) of a dealer selling a pill and then the druggie doing the pill and dying in front of the camera, I don't see how they can prosecute some one for this? Don't get me wrong I believe dealers should rot in jail but im just being real.

It really shouldn't be that hard if you know who they are. It won't be easy but it can be done. Think of the young and older ones we have lost. It can be done.

How can you hold the dealer accountable? The girl decided to use. She purchased them. She used too many. This is sad, but how can someone who sells be accused of murder? No one wants to take accountability for their own actions. That's 99% of the problem in Eastern Kentucky. Individuals have to reduce demand or there will always be dealers.

Is it worth the pain killing attributes that come with the abuse deaths that result? OC's have only been on the market for about 15 years. Are you telling me that this country or SE KY has that much more of a pain problem? What did they do before OC's were manufactured (they still are under different names)? The government needs to step in, either legalize completely, or stop producing a drug that has costs that outweigh benefits.

The law is the law and according to the law she will serve at least 20 years. Murder is murder. She was a grown, old woman selling to a young girl. She is is murderer.
