ROCHESTER, N.Y. — A 31-year-old Rochester man will spend more than 14 years in prison for selling a lethal dose of fentanyl that killed a teen girl.

An assistant U.S. attorney says Julio Rodriguez was part of a group that sold the drug from a house on Weaver Street between 2019 and 2020.

Investigators recovered 11 grams of fentanyl and more than $10,000 in cash from that home. Rodriguez admitted to selling fentanyl to an 18-year-old girl in 2018 who died from an overdose.
