NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — A Virginia Beach man is sentenced to 35 years in prison for distribution of heroin that resulted in a death.

Authorities say Gregory Hatt sold heroin to 23-year-old Monica Beaudry in 2014. Beaudry later overdosed from the drug.

Hatt was sentenced in a hearing at the Norfolk District Court in the Eastern District of Virginia Thursday.

Dana J. Boente, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, stated, “While justice cannot restore the Beaudry’s daughter to their family, law enforcement can continue to aggressively prosecute those who seek to prey upon vulnerable members of our community.”
