One of the men partying with two 18 year old girls who overdosed was sentenced to 6 months in jail - sparking outrage from family members of the victims. Mellie Carballo and Maria Pesantez had been hanging out with two older men - one being Alfredo Morales, who had had a prior arrest for drug possession - when they died from overdosing on speedballs last August. (Originally, it was suspected the speedballs were tainted, which led to a city-wide fear that killer heroin was to blame.) Morales admitted to unlawfully giving the girls cocaine, which brings a lighter sentence than selling drugs. His lawyer said that the deaths "took a heavy toll on him emotionally." Morales' friend, Roberto Martinez, whose apartment is where the girls overdosed, was only given a parole violation.
