Barnegat Drug Death Leads to Six-Year Sentence for Atlantic City Man

The Atlantic City 23-year-old who took a guilty plea to manslaughter and heroin distribution in the 2013 overdose death of a Barnegat man is sentenced to six years in prison. Authorities say it’s the ninth prosecution of its kind in just over a year in Ocean County since implementation of New Jersey’s Strict Liability Act.

Rasan S. McGee, in addition to the six year term for manslaughter under the No Early Release Act (NERA), was ordered to serve four-year concurrent terms for the drug count and for violation of probation in Atlantic County, according to information from the office of Ocean County Prosecutor Joseph D. Coronato.

Steven Janson, 26, was found dead inside his red Hyundai Genesis on Starboard Avenue on the afternoon of April 19, 2013.

According to information filed in the case, investigators found four bags of heroin in the car, which investigators determined had been bought in Atlantic City the day prior.

An undercover probe in cooperation with Atlantic County law enforcement led to the arrest of McGee, aka “Money.” Investigators said they recovered 50 bags of heroin marked “STINGRAY” from McGee as well as other related evidence.
