Ginsburg sentenced in death of high school student - 2008-01-05
Woelfel stated that he had received numerous letters in support of Ginsburg, and indicated that most of them came from people in Oklahoma, where Ginsburg attended rehabilitation, who didn't really know that Ginsburg was being charged for selling the drugs that caused young Lauren's death. Also noting, that they also seemed to be unaware of his involvement in the William Herbert case that preceded his move to Oklahoma. Herbert, 48, was found dead in his Milton apartment in January 2006. Ginsburg, who allegedly dealt drugs to him, was given mostly a probated sentence in Northumberland County Court.
Woelfel also said that Ginsburg had plead guilty before the court, and he was going to follow state mandates in sentencing him for the three crimes that he was ultimately charged with — unlawful possession with the intent to deliver cocaine, unlawful possession with the intent to deliver heroin, and misdemeanor involuntary manslaughter.
