image for Minnesota man sentenced to life in prison for selling fentanyl in 11 fatal overdoses: "Your disregard for human life is terrifying"

A Minnesota man was sentenced to life in prison Monday for selling fentanyl online that led to 11 fatal overdoses.

A federal jury in March convicted Aaron Broussard, 32, of Hopkins, of 17 counts including distribution of fentanyl resulting in death.

Federal prosecutors said at trial that Broussard's customers thought they were buying a stimulant similar to Adderall.

"Broussard did reach out to his suppliers in China to request a discount on his next drug delivery.".

Families, friends, and communities forever changed by the devastation brought on by Aaron Broussard's deadly fentanyl.

Fentanyl's threat to teens is also a concern because of how easily fentanyl-laced drugs can be bought online, Milgram said.

Three quarters of teen overdose deaths in 2021 involved fentanyl, according to a study published in JAMA in April. »
