Mac Miller death: Man who dealt rapper fentanyl sentenced to more than 10 years in prison
LOS ANGELES - One of the men convicted in the 2018 death of rapper Mac Miller was sentenced Monday to 131 months — just shy of 11 years — for his role in supplying the late rapper fentanyl-laced pills which led to his fatal overdose in 2018.
Ryan Reaves, 39, pleaded guilty last year to distributing fentanyl.
Two others were also charged. Stephen Walter, 49, of Westwood, pleaded guilty to the distribution charge and is awaiting sentencing. The case against Cameron Pettit, 30, of West Hollywood, is pending.

According to court documents, Reavis sold Miller counterfeit oxycodone pills laced with fentanyl at Walter's direction in September 2018. Reavis admitted knowing that the pills were laced. Shortly after Reavis handed over the fentanyl-laced pills, Pettit allegedly supplied the pills to Miller, whose real name was Malcolm McCormick.
Miller died at his San Fernando Valley just days later on Sept. 7, 2018.
