As part of his sentence, an Ohio drug dealer was ordered to cover the funeral expenses for a user who overdosed, WLWT reported.
Michael Chandler, 29, of Cincinnati, was sentenced in U.S. District Court to 200 months in prison for distributing fentanyl.
Chandler also was ordered to pay more than $9,000 to cover the costs of a user’s death that was a result of his distributing the drug, WLWT reported. The user, a juvenile, overdosed and died after ingesting fentanyl on April 20, 2016, investigators said.
Authorities said they were able to trace the fentanyl to Chandler. He was indicted on six drug distribution charges in June 2016 and pleaded guilty in May 2017, WLWT reported.
