Correction: Woman Gets 6 Years For Providing Lethal Drug

Court ActionLITTLE FALLS  (AP) – A woman is sentenced to six years in prison for providing the narcotic that resulted in the death of a Fort Ripley man.

Jason Ramsdell died in February 2010 after taking Fentanyl, a powerful painkiller. He bought the drug from 57-year-old Patricia Taylor of Browerville. She had a prescription for injuries suffered in a car accident.

Ramsdell’s family shared fond memories of him during a sentencing hearing Monday in Morrison County. His fiancee, Laura Miller, said the loss of a loved one can’t be quantified in numbers. Miller says she and Ramsdell had a future, a life plan, until he died at age 27.

Taylor will get credit for nearly 14 months she has already served in the Morrison County Jail.

Ramsdell worked for the family’s landscape business, which he took over after his older brother, Shawn drowned in July of 2009.
