Orlando Resident Arrested For Distributing Drugs That Resulted In Overdose Death

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Middle District of Florida

Orlando, Florida – United States Attorney Maria Chapa Lopez announces the unsealing of a criminal complaint and arrest warrant charging Jonathan Bohn a/k/a “Jonah” (35, Orlando) with distribution of a controlled substance that resulted in death. If convicted, Bohn faces a maximum penalty of life in federal prison.        

According to the criminal complaint, on December 16, 2017, Bohn sold a victim a controlled substance that contained fentanyl. After the victim ingested the narcotic, the victim’s daughter found the victim unresponsive in their residence. The Orange County Medical Examiner’s office subsequently determined that the victim’s cause of death was fentanyl and cocaine intoxication.       

A criminal complaint is merely a formal charge that a defendant has committed one or more violations of federal criminal law, and every defendant is presumed innocent unless, and until, proven guilty.

This case is a part of the Middle District of Florida’s anti-opioid strategy to combat opioid trafficking and abuse. It was investigated by the Orange County Sheriff’s Office and the Drug Enforcement Administration. It will be prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Sean P. Shecter.
