Man gets 15 years for selling fake oxy pills that led to death

A resident of El Cajon in San Diego has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for selling counterfeit oxycodone pills laced with fentanyl that caused the death of a 19-year-old man.

Olatunde James Temitope Akintonde previously admitted that he sent messages to the man – known only as SJG – and delivered two fake oxycodone pills to him. He also sent messages to SJG advising him only to take one pill as they were strong. SJG died in his Santee home sometime in the evening of February 28, 2019 or the early morning hours of March 1, 2019.

A Department of Justice press release notes that Akintonde offered various prescription pills for sale through different social media platforms, and also posted photographs of himself brandishing firearms as well as songs promoting the use and distribution of pharmaceutical pills.
