Read Time:4 Minute, 40 Second

Drug dealer Mack Miller was sentenced Monday to more than 17 years in prison for distributing Percocet tablets with fentanyl that contributed to the rapper’s deadly overdose.

Stephen Andrew Walter, 48, of Californiapleaded guilty to one article on the distribution of fentanyl in November 2021.

The crime carries a 20-year mandatory minimum sentence, but under the plea agreement Walter will instead serve 17 and a half years, according to a memorandum of sentence that was received KTLA.

Officials say Walter knew the pills contained fentanyl or other substances controlled by federal agencies when allowed to be distributed.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in California, which oversaw Walter’s case, did not immediately respond to a DailyMail.com request for comment.

Miller – whose real name was Malcolm James McCormick – was just 26 years old when he died from an accidental overdose of potent opioid fentanyl in 2018. At that time, his body also had cocaine and alcohol.

Walter is one of the three accused in the death of the famous rapper.

Ryan Michael Reeves, 39, was sentenced last month to 11 years in prison after he also pleaded guilty to distributing fentanyl.

Reavis knowingly delivered counterfeit oxycodone tablets containing fentanyl to one Cameron defendant James Petit, 30 years old. The case against Patty is not yet pending.

In November 2021, when Walter pleaded guilty, prosecutors recommended he receive 17 years in prison and five years of supervision under supervision.

Prosecutors stressed that “Walter’s guilty plea means that he was fully aware of what he was laying on that night – fake xicadone pills with fentanyl.”

In the indictment of the grand jury, Walter, along with Petit and Revis, was accused of conspiracy to distribute controlled substances, which led to death, and the distribution of fentanyl, which led to death.

The 12-page indictment alleges that Walter supplied fentanyl and cocaine, which Petit sold to Miller and Revis acted as an intermediary.

Shortly after the indictment was uncovered, Petit pleaded not guilty.

Both Revis and Walter have drug-related convictions, according to the indictment.

On September 5, 2018 – two days before his death – Miller allegedly bought cocaine, xanax and 10 blue pills from Petit, which seemed to be oxycodone.

In lyrics allegedly written by Miller Petty, the rapper proclaimed his love of oxycodone, or “percs” for the Percocet brand.

However, the oxycodone pills Miller bought were counterfeit and actually contained fentanyl, a synthetic opioid 50 times more potent than heroin.

In another set of text messages, Reeves, who sold Petit’s pills on Sept. 4, worried that undercover police were buying drugs.

“People were dying from fake blues left and right,” the statement said. “It is better to believe that law enforcement agencies use informants and undercover agents to buy them on the street so that they can imprison citizens for life for selling counterfeit pills.”

Miller was found dead by his aide at his home in Los Angeles on Sept. 7. According to the coroner’s report, he died from an accidental overdose due to a combination of alcohol and drugs.

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency says only milligrams of fentanyl can be fatal, depending on a person’s tolerability, past use and body size.

Fentanyl and other synthetic opioids are the leading cause of death from overdose in the United States.
