ROSEVILLE, Calif. (KTXL) — Virgil Xavier Bordner, 22, was sentenced to 17 years in prison for the involuntary manslaughter and selling fentanyl as the result of the death of a Rocklin teen.

Bordner was given the maximum sentence based on the crimes committed.

“Zach was incredible he was such a good guy,” Didier’s mother Laura Didier said during a press conference following the sentencing. “He always wanted to make the world a better place. He truly did that in his shirt 17 years.”

On July 13, Bordner plead no contest to involuntary manslaughter and selling fentanyl to Rocklin teen Zachary Didier who overdosed and died in December 2020.

“His compassion as a genuine friend was transformational to so many in his generation to so many in his class,” Didier’s father Chris Didier said during the same press conference.
