Pinellas County Man Jeffrey Saylor Sentenced For Selling Opioids

(STL.News) – U.S. District Judge John Antoon II has sentenced Jeffrey Saylor (48, St. Petersburg) to 30 months in federal prison for the unlawful distribution of a controlled substance.  Saylor had pleaded guilty on February 11, 2020.
