Mac Miller’s dealer has pleaded guilty to his involvement in the rapper’s death and could be facing up to twenty years behind bars.
Stephen Andrew Walter was part of a group of 3 men arrested for supplying Mac Miller with f*ntanyl-laced o*ycodone pills before his death.
According to official court documents filed in the United States District Court for the Central District of California which were reviewed by People Magazine, Walter agreed to a plea deal with prosecutors.
The papers state that the dealer “knowingly and intentionally directed Ryan Michael Reavis to distribute f*ntanyl in the form of counterfeit o*ycodone pills, to Cameron James Pettit.”
He also “knew that the pills that he directed Reavis to give to Pettit contained f*ntanyl or some other federally controlled substance, and at all relevant times intended for Reavis to distribute the pills to Pettit. Later that evening, at the defendant’s direction, Reavis delivered the pills to Pettit. Shortly thereafter, Pettit distributed these pills containing f*ntanyl to M.M.,” the outlet reported.
According to prosecutors, the rapper “would not have died from an overdose but for the f*ntanyl contained in the pills that M.M. had received from Pettit on September 4, 2018.”
Now, he is looking to serve between seventeen and twenty years behind bars for his involvement in the tragic incident.
Two other men, Ryan Michael Reavis and Cameron James Pettit, who was mentioned above, have also been charged.
Both of them were involved in the chain that distributed the dr*gs to Miller and eventually lead to his untimely death.
The news comes after Mac Miller died in 2018 due to a dr*g overdose.
The twenty-six-year-old’s autopsy revealed that he had alcohol as well as c***ine in his system when he died on September 7th.
Rest in peace.
