Man Makes Plea Deal in Mac Miller Drug Supply Case | entertainment
A second man has signed a plea deal for the delivery of the drugs that led to Mac Miller’s fatal overdose.
The ‘Self Care’ hit maker – real name Malcolm McCormick – died of an accidental overdose in September 2018 as part of his role in the supply chain.
The Justice Department said, “On the instructions of Co-Defendant Stephen Andrew Walter … Reavis knowingly distributed counterfeit oxycodone pills to Co-Defendant Cameron James Pettit.”
The case against Pettit is pending, and he is due to go on trial in March 2022, while Walter agreed last month to plead guilty to the distribution of fentanyl.
In his informed consent form, Reavis admitted knowing that the pills he had supplied “contained fentanyl or some other controlled substance”.
The Justice Department has claimed, “Shortly after Reavis distributed the fentanyl-tipped pills to Pettit, Pettit distributed the pills” to the rapper ‘Circles’.
Mac later ingested the counterfeit pills along with alcohol and cocaine, which resulted in his tragic death.
On September 4, 2018, it was announced that Walter “knowingly and intentionally instructed Ryan Michael Reavis to distribute fentanyl in the form of counterfeit oxycodone pills to Cameron James Pettit”.
Documents relating to Walter’s plea deal stated that he “knew that the pills he had directed Reavis to give Pettit contained fentanyl or some other state-controlled substance and were intended for Reavis at all relevant times to deliver the pills Pettit to distribute. “
They added: “Later that evening, Reavis delivered the pills to Pettit on the orders of the defendant. Shortly afterwards, Pettit distributed this fentanyl-containing pill to MM. “
According to prosecutors, Mac “would not have died from an overdose” had it not been for the fentanyl in the pills.
It is not yet known what possible sentence Reavis will receive, but Walter faces between 17 and 21 years in prison and a $ 1 million fine.
