CLEVELAND, Ohio (WYTV) – A Youngstown man was sentenced to 30 years in prison for firearms and narcotics violations, including selling heroin that resulted in a fatal overdose. 

Lebron Charles Bunkley, 38, was found guilty of last year of charges including distribution of heroin, cocaine and crack cocaine as well as being a felon in possession of a firearm.

On May 14, 2016, a person fatally overdosed on heroin sold by Bunkley in Youngstown, according to court documents.

“This defendant has a long history with firearms and drugs, and sending him to prison for decades will make the community a safer place,” said Carole S. Rendon, U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.
