Cedar Rapids man sentenced in connection with drug deaths

Posted:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

A Cedar Rapids man who admitted to selling prescription methadone to two Hiawatha residents who died from using the drug will spend more than five years in federal prison.

Tim Bowen II, 52, pleaded guilty in October to distributing methadone.

He was sentenced on Wednesday to five years and three months in prison, will pay $2,331 in restitution to the family of one of the victims and will serve six years of supervised release.

According to court records, Bowen admitted to selling a bottle containing 60 methadone pills to one of the victims on Dec. 22, 2010.

Court officials say the person who bought the pills and another individual died from combining several prescription and non-prescription drugs, including the methadone that Bowen sold.
