Jail time for OD death

A 25-year-old man who sold his long-time friend drugs that caused a fatal overdose has been sentenced to five years in prison for his role in the death.

Justice Michael Harpur's sentence specifies that Ryan Walker will not serve the full sentence due to a combination of time already served and his co-operation with another court case related to the death of Shawn Kelly.
