Drug problem in McKean Co.

Our County is not immune to the devastating impact of illegal narcotics. We have lost many of our citizens to illegal drugs and we responded by pursuing criminal charges against those who deliver deadly drugs to others who died. The first such case to go to trial in our County occurred in 2018. At trial, we obtained the first conviction for Drug Delivery Resulting in Death in McKean County history.
