Mac Miller ‘s drug supplier has been given a 17.5-year prison sentence for providing the rapper Percocet pills laced with fentanyl that contributed to his overdose.

The musician – real name Malcolm James McCormick – was found dead in his Los Angeles home in September 2018 after taking, cocaine, alcohol and fentanyl.

Drug supplier Stephen Andrew Walter, 48, of California, pleaded guilty to one count of distribution of fentanyl in October 2021.

The offence usually carries a mandatory penalty of 20 years behind bars.

However, under a plea agreement, Walter will serve 17.5 years, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

The judge went over the suggested sentence and said it was due to Walter continuing to sell the drugs after the rapper died.

Walter apologized to Miller’s family during Monday’s hearing and said his “actions caused a lot of pain.”

He said: “My actions caused a lot of pain, and for that, I’m truly remorseful. I’m not that type of person who wants to hurt anybody. That’s not me.

“But on the paperwork where it says that I continued to conduct in that kind of behaviour after I knew that there was death, that’s not the truth, your honour.”

Walter is one of three men charged in the case. Ryan Michael Reavis, 39, pleaded guilty to the distribution charge last month.

He received around 11 years in prison. The case against Cameron Pettit, 30, is still ongoing.

According to Deadline, Walter had supplied the laced oxycodone pills to Reavis who then allegedly gave the to Pettit.

Reavis admittedly knew that the pills contained fentanyl before allegedly giving it to the rapper a few days before his death.

Walter also claimed to the court that he had ‘no idea’ of the rapper’s death and thought the pills were for Pettit to consume.

He said he ‘would’ve stopped’ if he was aware of what happened to Miller. He said that Pettit ‘never told him’ it was for Miller and that Pettit had ‘experienced in using those pills’.

“I’m still taking responsibility for everything that happened, but he never told me it was for another person,” Walter said.

“He was experienced in using those pills. I thought it was for him — for personal use. And then he delivered them to McCormick with cocaine and Xanax, or whatever.

“I was not willing to do that and had no intent to do anything else other than [sell to] Cameron Pettit. And then two days later, when there was an overdose, Cameron never called me and told me about it, that he had anything to do with him.

“So I had no idea that somebody had passed. If I would have known, I would not have continued that type of behaviour.”
