Woman Gets Prison for Rape and Death of Boy

Lindsey Latourette, 25-year-old Saugerties woman, who gave methadone to a 15-year-old boy and had sex with him before he died later that day, was sentenced in Ulster County Court, Thursday, to 1 1/3 to four years in state prison. Latourette pleaded guilty in March to criminally negligent homicide, rape and criminal sale of a controlled substance in connection with the Saugerties teenager’s death.

Ulster County Judge Donald Williams told Latourette "my only regret is I cannot do more to punish you." Latourette received the methadone legally from a methadone clinic. It was the practice of that facility to give their clients their weekend dose on Fridays and allow them to take them home. It was from that weekend supply that Latourette gave the lethal dose to the victim on June 14, 2008.
