Malden Man Sentenced to 21 Years for Heroin Sales Resulting in Death

Maximo Laryi Herrerra Pena, aka Emerson Adams, 29, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Nathaniel Gorton to 21 years in federal prison to be followed by four years of supervised release.

A former Malden man was sentenced to 21 years in prison after a jury found him guilty Thursday of distributing drugs that resulted in the death of a Cape Cod woman. 

Maximo Laryi Herrerra Pena, also known as Emerson Adams, 29, was sentenced to 21 years in federal prison to be followed by four years of supervised release. 

Pena pleaded guilty to participating in a heroin distribution conspiracy responsible for the distribution of more than 1.6 kilograms of heroin, the Justice Department said in a statement Friday. 

A 20-year-old Brewster woman overdosed on some of Pena's heroin in 2009, according to prosecutors.

FMJ, be careful, the Libs on here are not fond of deportation, or capital punishment.

Was my comment removed for a violation or collateral damage?

Hey ScollaySQ, it was indeed collateral damage. I would've kept it, but in our system the deletion of a primary comment also gets rid of direct replies.

After reading several articles & peoples comments, I realized they start talking trash to each other & by the time their done going back & forth their not even speaking in regards to the article that was published. lol Let's all repect each other & our different opinions, it's basically saying lets agree to dis-agree & we'll all be happy & feel respected.
Steve October 15, 2012 at 10:46 AM
No some people don't like to hear the truth that Malden is done! So all they can do is attack and offend those that don't agree with them.
DannyBoy October 15, 2012 at 02:52 PM
Sorry Steve, but nowhere in my comments did I say anything offensive towards you, unless your criteria for offensive language is different than mine. Btw, you're the one characterizing people who disagree with you as "sheep", and that kind of language might be construed as offensive and a personal attack by others.
