A 46-year-old Harvard woman pleaded guilty Wednesday to delivering drugs to a Harvard man just before he died of a drug overdose in 2018, prosecutors said.
Tiera Tracy, 46, of Harvard, entered a blind plea and pleaded guilty to unlawful delivery of a controlled substance, a Class 1 felony.
In exchange for the plea, prosecutors dropped charges of drug-induced homicide and possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance.
The Harvard Police Department launched an investigation after Timothy J. Goluba, 52, of Harvard, died in the early morning hours of February 1, 2018. Toxicology results showed Goluba died from a combination of heroin, fentanyl and morphine.
Police ultimately determined that Tracy delivered drugs to Goluba the day before on January 31, 2018, prosecutors said. Tracy was charged and had been free on bail since September 2018.
She was booked back into the McHenry County Jail after pleading guilty. A sentencing hearing has been scheduled for April 3.
The case was investigated by members of the Harvard Police Department and prosecuted by Brian Miller of the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office.
