Bradley Commerford told a federal judge Friday that he sold heroin to support his own habit, and was not roaming the Valley’s streets looking for people to get hooked on the drug.
But as the judge pointed out later, Commerford didn’t stop dealing even after he knew three people had overdosed on the drugs he sold them — one of whom died. And when Commerford was picked up by police, he was on his way to get more heroin.
U.S. District Court Judge Alvin Thompson said Friday it was the 20-year-old man’s “high degree of recklessness, and no concern for others” that made up his mind to sentence Commerford to 71 months behind bars, the maximum prison term under a plea deal in the federal case.
