In late June, 50-year-old Larry Bolden pleaded guilty to distribution of a controlled substance resulting in death and this week he was sentenced to three decades in prison. Bolden has admitted he sold $40 worth of drugs that wound up leading to an overdose death at an apartment in Rock Island in January of 2017. A drug sale nine days later led to a death at a home in Moline.
Autopsy results indicated Bolden was selling a drug mixture that included fentanyl and morphine. Court records show Bolden was selling the drugs out of a hotel room in Davenport.
