GUILTY PLEA in Fentanyl Case

Mayers-Johnson sold one-half gram of fentanyl to the victim, who was residing at a sober living home. The victim later ingested the fentanyl that Mayers-Johnson supplied, resulting in the victim’s overdose on October 20, and, one day later, the victim’s death.  Mayers-Johnson faces 20 years in federal prison.
