MAC MILLER'S DRUG DEALER HIT WITH A SERIOUS PRISON SENTENCE
By NICOLE CORD-CRUZ
Four years after rapper Mac Miller died from a fentanyl overdose in 2018, one of the three drug dealers responsible is facing consequences. Stephen Andrew Walter is the second dealer to receive a prison sentence for Miller's death; in April of 2022, Ryan Reavis was sentenced to 10 years and 11 months in prison.
Walter, the man ultimately responsible for supplying Miller with fentanyl-laced pills, has been sentenced to 17 and a half years in prison. Per the court documents obtained by Entertainment Tonight, Walter tasked Ryan Reavis to distribute the pills to another dealer named Cameron Pettit, who then sold them to Miller.
Walter initially entered a plea agreement of 17 years, but U.S. District Judge Otis D. Wright thought it was "too lenient" after finding out that Walter continued to distribute the fentanyl-laced pills until his arrest in 2019. Much like Ryan Reavis, Walter expressed remorse to the court and spoke his piece about the incident.
The 49-year-old said he never knew that the drugs would be sold to Miller, and he thought that only Pettit would use them. "I'm not that type of person who wants to hurt anybody," Walter said. "That's not me I'm still taking responsibility for everything that happened, but [Pettit] never told me it was for another person."
