WARSAW - A Batavia man was sentenced by Wyoming County Judge Michael M. Mohun last week to 10 years in state prison for selling 13 bags of heroin laced with the horse tranquilizer xylazine to a confidential informant.
Bradley J. Broadbent, 37, had been found guilty by a jury on Jan. 10 of third-degree criminal possession and sale of a controlled substance. The crime occurred in the Village of Perry on Jan. 14, 2016.
Mohun also ordered the previously convicted drug dealer to serve 1 1/2 years of post-release supervision.
Wyoming County District Attorney Donald G. O'Geen praised former Assistant District Attorney Eric Schiener for his role in the conviction.
"Heroin is an extremely dangerous drug that is highly addictive and this case demonstrates how dangerous heroin is," O'Geen said. "To sell heroin, let alone lace it with a horse tranquilizer, is reckless."
