One of Mac Miller’s alleged drug dealers has pleaded guilty. According to court documents filed on Monday (Oct. 25), Stephen Walter entered a guilty plea, admitting to one count of distribution of fentanyl.
Walter was one of three men accused of selling Mac the drugs that ultimately led to his accidental overdose. Prosecutors claimed that he gave Ryan Michael Reavis cocaine, Xanax, and counterfeit oxycodone pills laced with fentanyl and told him to sell them to Cameron Petitt despite awareness of the fatal nature of the fake drugs. Petitt then delivered them to Miller, who passed away on Sept. 7, 2018, after consuming a fatal combination of fentanyl, cocaine and alcohol in addition to other substances.
Since the tragic news, Reavis was arrested and charged with fraudulent schemes and artifices, possession of marijuana, prescription drugs, drug paraphernalia, weapons misconduct by a prohibited possessor and manufacture of a prohibited weapon. Pettit, who was taken into police custody in Sept. 2019, faces one count of distribution of controlled substances.
As for Walter, he confirmed his distribution of the oxycodone pills by accepting the plea deal, which drops his initial charge of conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance. He is now facing a maximum sentence of 20 years and a lifetime of supervised release — a punishment prosecutors believe should be reduced to 17 years in prison and 5 years of supervised release.
Mac’s supplier may also have to pay $1 million or more and faces a mandatory “special assessment of $100 and a court-imposed term of supervised release that is no less than three years.”
Walter’s plea deal comes days before he and his fellow drug suppliers were scheduled to go to trial. As previously reported by REVOLT, the trial date for all three men — who have been in federal custody without bail for over two years — is slated to begin on Nov. 16.
