Man agrees to plead guilty for his connection in Mac Miller's death

The person responsible for supplying fentanyl-laced oxycodone pills to Mac Miller, and played a part in the rapper’s untimely death, has agreed to plead guilty to the charge of distributing the drug.

Three men in total have been charged in connection with Miller’s death. Stephen Andrew Walter is set to face proceedings alongside Cameron James Pettit and Ryan Michael Reavis. Court documents show that Walter initially handed the drugs to Reavis, who then passed them on to Pettit, who sold them to Miller on September 5th, 2018.

Just two days later, Miller was found dead two days later with an accidental drug overdose from a combination of fentanyl, cocaine and alcohol, later discovered as the cause of his death. In 2019, Walter, Pettit and Reavis were indicted on charges of conspiracy and distribution of drugs resulting in death.

Due to Walter pleading guilty, the grand jury indictment on the severe charges of fentanyl distribution resulting in death and conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance resulting in death will be dropped. However, he will instead face a single count of fentanyl distribution.

Rolling Stone reports that Walter has agreed to a prison sentence of 17 years, and the judge in the trial will either accept or reject this proposal.

Walter said in a written statement given to the Los Angeles federal court, “I am pleading guilty because I am guilty of the charge and wish to take advantage of the promises set forth in this agreement.”

Meanwhile, Pettit has also reached a plea agreement, and Reavis will go to trial on March 1st.
