A man involved in a drug deal that led to a fatal stabbing in June pleads guilty in Warren County Court.
Richard Rothaupt pleaded guilty to tampering with physical evidence, and possession of a controlled substance.
He removed a bag of prescription drugs from the scene of a fight that led to the fatal stabbing of Charles Werner in Glens Falls.
He was sentenced to up to seven years in prison.
The deal did not require him to testify against his co-defendants, Skylar Phillips and Nicholas Hamel.
Rothaupt says he was across the street when the stabbing happened.
