Mac Miller’s Drug Dealer Sentenced to 11 Years in Prison

One of the three drug dealers who were ultimately held responsible for Mac Miller‘s death has been sentenced to 10 years and 11 months in prison. Ryan Reavis, the middle-man between Stephen Walter and Cameron Pettit, received this sentencing on Monday afternoon, according to Rolling Stone.

Reavis received the fentanyl-laced oxycodone pills from Walter, which then transferred hands to Pettit, and ultimately to Mac Miller back in September of 2018. In a statement addressing the court, Reavis mentioned that he did not know that the pills were laced with fentanyl.

Using the term “blues” to refer to the pills, Reavis texted the following to a colleague back in 2018:

People have been dying from fake blues left and right, you better believe law enforcement is using informants and undercover[s] to buy them on the street [so] they can start putting ppl in prison for life for selling fake pills.

While Reavis won’t get life in prison, he still will be behind bars for over a decade.

Mac Miller’s mother, Karen Meyers, gave the following victim impact statement before the sentencing was issued:

My life went dark the moment Malcolm left his world. Malcolm was my person, more than a son. We had a bond and kinship that was deep and special and irreplaceable. We spoke nearly every day about everything—his life, plans, music, dreams. He would never knowingly take a pill with fentanyl, ever. He wanted to live and was excited about the future. The hole in my heart will always be there.
