Posted by Fay Arfa | Oct 28, 2019 | 0 Comments

Julian Miles Mayers-Johnson, 32, a Venice man who sold the powerful synthetic opioid fentanyl to a 19-year-old man who suffered a fatal overdose pleaded guilty to possession with intent to distribute fentanyl. On October 19, 2018, outside a fast-food restaurant in Venice, Mayers-Johnson knowingly possessed fentanyl, intending to distribute it. 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.
