Stuart Mouchantaf, 27, of Katy, pleaded guilty on February 20, 2020 to charges related to giving Padgett a lethal synthetic opioid, according to US Attorney Jennifer B. Lowery.

On Thursday, Mouchantaf’s attorney said he would receive two years of credit for time served.

In March 2018, Padgett failed to show up for soccer practice and authorities later found his body in the 1900 neighborhood of Norfolk. An autopsy determined that Padgett’s cause of death was the ingestion of a drug laced with fentanyl.

As for Mouchantaf, he will remain in custody pending his transfer to a US Bureau of Prisons facility to be determined in the near future, according to authorities.
