It’s off to prison for more than two decades for a California heroin dealer who authorities say was responsible for two overdose deaths.

David Ryan Tejera, 23, pleaded guilty Monday in Los Angeles federal court in a deal that calls for him to serve 22 years, the Associated Press reported.

Authorities said Tejera injected a heroin and cocaine mixture into a Simi Valley man three times, resulting in his death, AP reported. He also provided heroin to a Thousand Oaks man who overdosed and died.

He caught a real break, as he faced a MINIMUM of 10 years and a maximum of life, or a minimum of 20 and maximum of life if he had a prior drug conviction. With 2 or more priors — MANDATORY life in prison.
