Ecstasy Killer Gets 14 Months

The London Mirror reports:
A man who supplied a teenager with the ecstasy that killed him was yesterday jailed for 14 months.
Daniel Lee, 19, had a fit in front of his parents and later died in hospital after a common reaction to the drug.
He had been given the tablet by Michael Hughes, Swansea crown court heard.
Hughes, 24, from Swansea, already had a conviction for possessing cocaine.
After the hearing, Daniel’s dad Hywel said: “Anyone experimenting with ecstasy or thinking about it should think again – the risks are too high. Daniel made a mistake and paid the price.”
Kill with a gun and face serious time; kill with ecstasy and get 14 months. It hardly seems fair.
