Sitting in the basement of his Milton home, heroin flowing through his veins for the first time, Gregg Ivey was euphoric. “This is the best feeling in the world!” he exclaimed. Moments later, Ivey collapsed, his face ashen, his lips turning blue. Friends couldn’t find a pulse and someone called 911. At 10:09 p.m., shortly after arriving at North Fulton Hospital, Ivey, 28, was pronounced dead. The life-of-the-party jokester with the bushy black beard was gone. That was nearly three years ago. But for Graham Williams, who allegedly helped Ivey locate a vein and shoot up that night, the consequences live on. The Fulton County district attorney has charged Williams, 35, with “distribution” of heroin — for injecting him with the fatal dose — plus a felony murder charge that could send him away for life. Williams’ lawyer is arguing that his client should be immune from prosecution under Georgia’s 911 Medical Amnesty law. Adopted in 2014 to encourage drug users to render aid instead of running away, the statute says that a person who calls 911 and remains at the scene “in good faith” providing care for an overdose victim cannot face criminal prosecution. Fatal heroin overdose tests limits of amnesty law I like this law. I don't think that it can fly with not allowing someone to call for 15 minutes and then calling and using it as a defense.
