In court documents‚ Reavis claimed that he only acted as a middleman and that he didn't know about the fentanyl-laced pills until it was too late. He said he didn't even know the pills contained the deadly drug. But Reavis was found guilty and sentenced to 131 months in prison‚ with the remainder of the sentence being supervised.
