WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- Dennis Sica, the "Breaking Bad" dealer of Hudson Valley, was sentenced today to 35 years in prison in U.S. District Court in White Plains.

According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office Southern District of New York, Sica was sentened for participation in a conspiracy to distribute his "Breaking Bad" branded heroin laced with fentanyl. The drugs resulted in the deaths of Anthony Delello, Laura Brown and Thomas Miller.

“Sica chose again and again, to sell lethal heroin laced with fentanyl for profit, even after realizing that his ‘Breaking Bad’ branded drugs were killing people," said U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara. "No sentence is going to bring back the three young people whose lives were cut short, but this prosecution hopefully brings some closure to their loved ones and causes others who peddle the poison of fentanyl-laced heroin not to make the same terrible choices Sica made.”

Sica pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute resulting in death. He also received a sentence of four years of supervised release.
