A Montgomery County woman was sentenced to state prison for five to 10 years after pleading guilty on Wednesday, Oct. 26, 20222, to delivering the drugs that caused the June 2020 overdose death of a Bensalem man.
Appearing before Common Pleas Judge Raymond F. McHugh, Corrine Marie Smith, 43, of Jenkintown, entered guilty pleas to charges of drug delivery resulting in death, criminal use of a communication facility, possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance, and recklessly endangering another person.
Prior to sentencing the mother of 30-year-old Matthew Graham, told the judge in an impact statement, “I miss Matt every day and people need to know that there will be consequences for doing this to someone. This has to stop.” Other relatives were also present.
The charges against Smith were the result of a lengthy investigation by a detective with the Bucks County District Attorney’s Office Drug Strike Force after Graham was found dead of an overdose on June 12, 2020, inside the Penn Lodge Hotel in Bensalem Township.
