Ozark Man Sentenced In Overdose Death

A judge has sentenced a Christian County man for selling drugs to a 16-year-old girl who died from an overdose.

Jacob Sayre of Ozark will be required to complete a 120-day prison program and then serve five-years probation.

He pleaded guilty in March to involuntary manslaughter and delivery of a controlled substance.

Court documents say Sayre allegedly sold and dropped off a package to a 16-year-old girl in September of 2022.

The girl was found dead in her bedroom the next day with a lethal amount of fentanyl in her system.
