TIOGA COUNTY – Attorney General Letitia James today announced the sentencing of Yvette King of Ithaca, for her central role in a drug trafficking ring that moved hundreds of thousands of dollars’ worth of fentanyl-laced heroin and other narcotics from New York City to the Finger Lakes Region. King also employed family members for her illicit operations, and following her indictment in 2017, fled New York and was apprehended last year in Texas. King was sentenced today by Tioga County Court Judge Gerald A. Keene to seven years in state prison followed by two years of post-release supervision, based upon her plea on June 15, 2020 to Criminal Sale of a Controlled Substance in the Third Degree, a class B felony.
