Clearfield County Inmate Pleads Guilty To Overdose Death

Authorities say a Clearfield County inmate has plead guilty for her role in the overdoses of three fellow inmates at the Clearfield County Jail, one of whom died.

District attorney Ryan Sayers says Angela Ricketts appeared in court earlier this week where she entered a guilty plea to charges of drug delivery resulting in death and possession with the intent to deliver, among others.

Police charged Ricketts last September following an investigation into three women overdosing at the county prison.

Investigators say Ricketts reportedly smuggled fentanyl into the facility and provided it to her fellow inmates.

Authorities say one of the women, 31-year-old Kaitlyn Evans, died as a result of her overdose.

Her family has since filed a lawsuit against the jail’s staff for allowing the drugs into the facility.

Officials say Ricketts faces a minimum sentence of seven years behind bars, with the maximum sentence to be determined by the judge.

She is scheduled to be sentenced on May 20th.
