After pleading guilty, another person in the Mac Miller overdose case has been sentenced to prison for supplying the late rapper with fentanyl-laced drugs.
According to TMZ, Stephen Walter, 49, pled guilty to supplying drugs that resulted in Miller’s death in September 2018 at the age of 26. He was sentenced to 17.5 years in prison and told the court that he was “truly remorseful” for his role in obtaining the drugs for Miller.
Ryan Michael Reavis, 39, pled guilty to drug distribution and was sentenced to 10 years in prison last month. Cameron James Pettit, a third person of interest in the case, previously pled not guilty. However, according to text exchanges between them,, Pettit was the one who directly brought the drugs to the Miller.
In September 2019, all three suspects were detained as part of the Miller death investigation. Pettit was accused of dealing fentanyl-laced oxycodone pills to the rapper only two days before his death.
Reavis, who was first to be imprisoned, allegedly supplied the fentanyl-laced drug to Pettitt. Per reports, the late rapper died after taking a fatal cocktail of fentanyl, cocaine, and alcohol.
Reavis was reportedly still dealing drugs as late as June 2019, despite his admittance to being remorseful to the prosecution during the trial, according to the assistant U.S. Attorney Elia Herrera who told the court last month.
Attorney Herrera asserted that Reavis had knowledge of the overdose-related deaths linked to the substances he sold.
“Defendant knew that people were dying from fake blues left and right,” Herrera said. “He knew that people were being put away in prison for life for dealing them. Defendant was not worried about people dying left and right. He was worried about getting caught.”
