Suppliers In Sian's Death Get Warning

The two boys who gave Sian Sadler the ecstasy that killed her got off with a warning, according to the Manchester (England) evening news:
Two teenagers arrested after the death of a woman thought to have taken an ecstasy tablet have been cautioned. The pair, aged 18 and 19, were arrested after Sian Sadler, 18, from Alderley Edge collapsed after a night out at the Sankeys Soap nightspot in Manchester city centre. Sian died in April after paramedics were called to an address in Wilmslow when she became ill. The teenagers were cautioned for possession.
What a tragedy. From all I know, there was no intent involved, but in many jurisdictions, death as the result of the administration of an illegal drug is a prosecutable and serious offense.

My film profiles kids who died from Ecstasy, including Sara, who's death reminds me of Sian's. View a preview here.
