Houghton Lake Man Pleads Guilty to ‘Delivery Causing Death’ in Fentanyl Overdose
July 27, 2023
LANSING — Yesterday, Chase Rosenthal, 28, of Houghton Lake pled guilty before Judge Robert Bennett in the Roscommon County Circuit Court to one count of Delivery Causing Death after providing fentanyl to a man who would overdose and die hours later, announced Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel.
Rosenthal delivered Fentanyl to a Houghton Lake man on the afternoon of May 27, 2022. Hours later the victim was found deceased, having overdosed on the powerful narcotic. Delivery Causing Death is a felony with a maximum sentence of life in prison. The case was investigated by Michigan State Police.
“Controlled substances like Fentanyl carve devastation through families and across communities,” said Nessel. “My Department will use every resource available to fight back against the deadly opioid epidemic and hold accountable those who distribute narcotics and prey upon Michigan residents suffering from substance use disorder.”
Rosenthal will be sentenced September 5th before Judge Robert Bennett in Roscommon Circuit Court.
