WEST CHESTER, PA — The Chester County District Attorney’s Office announced that Jamane Raynor, age 32 of Philadelphia, was sentenced to 17½ to 44 years in state prison for drug delivery resulting in death, and related charges, after selling heroin laced with fentanyl to a 40-year old victim. A jury found him guilty in October 2020.
District Attorney Deb Ryan stated, “The defendant, in this case, had no regard for the victim’s life when he sold him a deadly combination of drugs. This victim’s death was just one of an ever-increasing number that is related to fentanyl. A true tragedy.”
Authorities state that on July 19, 2019, the victim went to a Phoenixville apartment to buy prescription drugs and methamphetamine. While there, the defendant also sold him “dope” – heroin laced with fentanyl. The victim died from an overdose in his parent’s basement the following day.
Phoenixville Police Sgt. Brian MacIntyre led the investigation. Chester County Assitant District Attorney Scott Werner was the prosecutor.
