Kenitzer was given 194 days of credit for time served and ordered to pay $1,075 in various court costs and attorney fees.

Judge Fenn sentenced 26-year-old David Osteen to 4 to 7 years in prison for the charges of Conspiracy to Deliver a Controlled Substance- Heroin, and Possession of a Controlled Substance With Intent to Deliver- Heroin. The prison sentence is suspended in lieu of three years of supervised probation. Osteen was ordered to pay $985 in various court costs and attorney fees.

The three defendants, all residents of Montana, were on their way back from Denver, where they had picked up a large amount of black tar heroin with the intent of distributing the drug throughout Montana.

If we are going to do the dirty work of the “legal” drug cartels and eliminate their competition, shouldn’t they be paying us for the service? We obviously have no problem acting as their henchmen. So why don’t we say, “Hey, Pfizer! We will continue to support your evil drug empire if you start paying us. Sound fair?”
