The men have been held without bail in Los Angeles for over two years, with their trial now set to begin on November 16, 2021.
US Attorney Nick Hanna said the defendants had ‘allegedly continued to sell narcotics after Mr McCormick’s death with full knowledge of the risk of their products.’
He added in a statement announcing the indictment: ‘It has become increasingly common for us to see drug dealers peddling counterfeit pharmaceuticals made with fentanyl.
‘As a consequence, fentanyl is now the number one cause of overdose deaths in the United States.’
Reavis is reportedly also facing several other charges including fraudulent schemes and artifices, possession of marijuana and prescription drugs as well as drug paraphernalia, weapons misconduct by a prohibited possessor and manufacture of a prohibited weapon and his lawyer, Correen Ferrentino told AllHipHop he wanted a separate trial from his co-defendants.
They claimed he was an ‘alleged runner and minor participant who is alleged to be involved in one transaction,’ but the request was denied.
All three defendants have pleaded not guilty.
