A second man pleaded guilty to delivering the fentanyl-infused pills that killed Mac Miller.
Ryan Reavis, 38, pleaded guilty to distributing fentanyl in a single case. According to TMZ, he faces up to 20 years in prison and a life-long supervised release, but he will likely receive a lesser sentence if he accepts the plea deal.
Reavis was the alleged runner who gave the fentanyl-infused oxycodone pills to Miller’s alleged drug dealer Cameron Pettit on the orders of Stephen Walter, who previously pleaded guilty to distributing fentanyl.
According to federal agencies, by the time Miller procured the deadly pills, Reavis was in LA. The pills he received were counterfeit and contained fentanyl, a powerful synthetic opioid that is 50 times stronger than heroin. When Reavis was arrested in 2019, a doctor’s prescription pad was found at his home.
A third man, Pettit, was also charged with conspiring to distribute controlled substances resulting in death and distributing fentanyl with death. He does not have to make a plea yet.
Miller became unresponsive on September 7, 2018 at his Studio City, California, home. The coroner ruled his death was an accidental overdose due to mixed drug toxicity of cocaine, alcohol, and fentanyl.
