|Akron man Jurmaine A. Jeffries, 29, will spend at least the next 20 years in prison for selling fentanyl to a woman who overdosed on the drug and died nearly three years ago. A jury found that the fentanyl Jeffries sold the woman resulted in her death.|
On Sept. 16, 2015, the day of her death, the woman texted and called Jeffries and asked to buy heroin. He responded to her messages and told her "B right there." After the woman died, police used her phone to text Jeffries about buying more drugs. Police arrested him when he showed up at the woman's house with more fentanyl. Jeffries is facing a mandatory minimum of two decades in prison.
