For the first time, a heroin dealer has been convicted in Oregon for causing the death of a user.  In 2011,  Aleksey Dzyuba, 43, of Milwaukie sold heroin to Toviy Ainyayev, 17.  After using the heroin, Sinyayev went into a coma and died three days later.  Dzyuba was sentenced to life with a mandatory sentence of 20 years.  There are currently 25 other defendants facing the similar federal charge in Oregon.  U.S. Attorney Amanda Marshall says this sends the message that anyone in the chain of supply of a drug that leads to death will be held responsible for that loss of life.
