AceShowbiz - Another man who allegedly supplied drugs to Mac Miller has accepted a plea deal. A few weeks after Stephen Andrew Walter pleaded guilty in connection to the rapper's death, Ryan Michael Reavis also did the same thing.
On Wednesday, November 10, prosecutors stated that the 38-year-old entered a guilty plea to one count of distributing fentanyl. He admitted to "knowing that the pills contained fentanyl or some other controlled substance."
According to the plea agreement, Ryan supplied counterfeit oxycodone pills to co-defendant Cameron James Pettit. Cameron later sold the pills and other drugs to Miller, who suffered a fatal overdose two days later on September 7, 2018.
Ryan, who was charged with fraud and drug and gun possession in connection with the case, previously pleaded not guilty. After accepting the plea deal, he faces a twenty-year sentence and a lifetime of supervised release.
Another co-defendant, Stephen Andrew Walter, also pleaded guilty to one count of distribution of fentanyl in October. In return, prosecutors agreed to drop a conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance charge. He faces more than 20 years behind bars, a lifetime of supervised release and a fine of $1 million.
The news arrived less than a month following the re-release of Mac's "Faces" mixtape on streaming services. The street album, which was originally released as a free download on Mother's Day 2014, has been available on Spotify and Apple Music since October 15.
The release, which explored Mac's struggle with drug addiction, features 24 songs with guest appearances from several artists. They include Rick Ross, Thundercat, Vince Staples, Schoolboy Q as well as Earl Sweatshirt.
In addition, the former boyfriend of Ariana Grande was featured on Young Thug's latest studio album "Punk". He contributed to the song "Day Before" which was recorded one day prior to the rapper's death.
