The man accused of selling drugs on the dark web, which in return caused a woman to overdose, has been found guilty.
The jury found Jeremy Achey guilty Thursday of conspiracy to distribute or possess with intent to distribute a controlled substance analogue intended for human consumption, and guilty of distribution of a controlled substance analogue for human consumption.
Authorities previously said the Bethlehem man used the "dark web" to sell a form of fentanyl and another drug to a Florida woman's fiance. They both took the drugs that were marked in a package that said "not for human or veterinary use."
The fiance said the victim ingested a small amount and two minutes later, she wasn't moving on the couch.
Federal prosecutors said Achey could be connected to 19 other overdose deaths across the country. Documents show he used the name "ETIKING" on the dark web.
Authorities were able to find a message between the fiance of the woman who died and "ETIKING" that says, in part, "I overdosed... U should probably up the price and put extra warnings on it."
