One of the people responsible for supplying Mac Miller with drugs laced with fentanyl has received a prison sentence after pleading guilty.

TMZ reports that 49-year-old Stephen Walter pleaded guilty to distributing drugs that led to the death of Miller in September 2018 at age 26. He has been sentenced to 17.5 years in prison, and told the court he was “truly remorseful” for his involvement in getting Miller the drugs. 

Last month, 39-year-old Ryan Michael Reavis pleaded guilty to a drug distribution charge and was sentenced to 10 years behind bars. The third suspect in the case, 30-year-old Cameron James Pettit, previously pleaded not guilty. Pettit, according to transcripts of texts between him and the late Miller, was the one who personally delivered the drugs to the rapper.

The three men were arrested in September 2019 amid the investigation into Miller’s death. Pettit has been accused of selling the rapper oxycodone pills that contained fentanyl just two days prior to his death. Reavis, the first of the three to be sentenced, allegedly supplied the drugs to Pettitt after getting them from Walter. Miller died of a fatal combination of fentanyl, cocaine, and alcohol.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Elia Herrera revealed in court last month that Reavis, despite expressing remorse to the prosecution during the trial, was still selling pills as late as June 2019. He was reportedly aware of the overdose deaths connected to the drugs he supplied. “Defendant knew that people were dying from fake blues left and right,” Herrera said. “He knew that people were being put away in prison for life for dealing them. Defendant was not worried about people dying left and right. He was worried about getting caught.”
