youngstown

A man who was accused of supplying the heroin that led to the death of a 22-year-old woman received a 10-year prison sentence this morning from Mahoning County Common Pleas Court Judge Lou D’Apolito.

Jamal Vaughn, 28, of Oak Lane, received the sentence after pleading guilty June 10 to the charges of involuntary manslaughter, 12 drug trafficking and three drug possession counts.

Prosecutors say Jessica Porter, 22, died after injecting herself with heroin at Vaughn’s home on Feb. 14, 2012. Vaughn was also accused of being part of a ring that distriubuted heroin and cocaine on the South and East sides in 2011 and 2012. Porter died while he was out on bond on other charges, according to prosecutors.

The charges come from five separate criminal investigations against Vaughn.
