North Carolina Judge Dies from Heroin and Fentanyl Overdose, Convicted DWI Cases

Tom Jarrell

A judge on drugs is not often, but this judge was high on heorin and fentanyl when he died.

A fentanyl and heroin overdose caused the unexpected death of Guilford County, NC former Chief District Court Judge Tom Jarrell, 56, the North Carolina Office of the Chief Medical Examiner said in an autopsy released Thursday.

The judge was found unresponsive August 3, 2019 on his bedroom floor during a welfare check at his High Point, NC home reports WXII 12 News.

PINAC News has reported on United States judges getting caught breaking the law on many occasions, from judges strangling employees, to drunk driving, to helping criminal defendants escape from court.

Judge Jarrell had the audacity to try DWI cases when he was a judge, sentencing thousands of people. But Jarrell was secretly doing fentanyl and heroin himself.

Jarrell had a medical history that was significant for atrial fibrillation, or irregular heartbeat, but police found a plastic bag with a powdered substance in his pocket, according to the report.

In his bathroom, police found a pocketknife and a piece of paper containing a powdered substance, according to the report. The autopsy found that there was a possible needle puncture in his right arm with dried blood.

There was also 40 milligrams of alcohol in his system, the toxicology report showed.

When appointed as chief district court judge in August 2016, Judge Jarrell saw a need to reduce the backlog of DWI cases on the docket in Guilford County.

Judge Jarrell sought to reduce fatalities involving impaired driving and making North Carolina roads and highways safer, yet Jarrell died using the illegal drugs of heroin and fentanyl.

Ok..After some thought I think the Hallelujah Chorus is better suited for this story instead of the devil screaming Amerifuck me. But it is Halloween. Also, I believe its true that when one of these bastards die, especially at their own hand an Angle gets it's wings and their is a course of Hallelujah playing throughout the heavens? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FoqxYqTNKmU

This article sucks. I understand what your news is about. I'm guessing you've never had someone you love be affected or die from today's epidemic of Opioid Abuse. I pray you never do.
