Ephrata man charged with giving heroin to teen daughter


EPHRATA, Pa. (WHTM) – An Ephrata man is facing corruption of minor charges after police say his 16-year-old daughter overdosed on the heroin he supplied her with.

Kerry Lynn Long, 35, is also charged with aggravated assault, endangering the welfare of children and possession with intent to distribute in connection with Saturday’s incident at a home in the 600 block of Poplar Street.

A nasal application of naloxone was administered. After no response, EMS administered additional doses.

Upon regaining consciousness, the girl told officers that her father supplied her with the heroin.
