KOOTENAI CO., Idaho. — A local teenager could spend up to 10 years in prison for selling fentanyl to a Post Falls student who then overdosed.
Randy Ter Maaten, 17, was convicted of delivering a controlled substance on school grounds.
The student he sold the drugs to then overdosed at Post Falls High School on June 2, 2022. Officers used Narcan to revive the student, who did survive.
Ter Maaten was then arrested and prosecuted as an adult.
Deputy Prosecuting Attorney recommended a 10-year prison sentence and asked the court to retain jurisdiction over Ter Maaten. A retained jurisdiction allows a defendant to spend up to one year in a prison-based treatment program before returning to court. Then, a judge will decide whether to place the defendant on probation or leave them in prison for the remainder of their sentence.
District Judge John Mitchell agreed and sentenced Ter Maaten to a 10-year prison sentence and retained jurisdiction over him.
