Theo Evan Macey, 27, allegedly provided his sister methadone. She was found dead from a multiple drug overdose on the morning of May 5 at a Nipomo home Macey shared with his girlfriend.
As part of a plea agreement, the charge of furnishing methadone to a minor was dropped.
Ilan Funke-Bilu, Macey’s attorney, successfully argued that his client was both a defendant and a victim who had lost the most precious person in his life.
