Mac Miller‘s life was cut short at the age of 26 after a fatal drug overdose in 2018. The superstar rapper and producer’s family now will get some justice after his tragic death.
TMZ obtained court documents that reveal Stephen Walter has entered a guilty plea on federal drug distribution charges. The powerful painkiller fentanyl was contained in a pill that Miller ingested, causing a lethal dose.
Prosecutors said that Walter was responsible for getting the pills to Miller’s alleged dealer, Cameron James Pettit. The pills were supposed to be Percosets. Instead, Miller received the fake pills that contained a deadly dose of fentanyl.
Pettit is alleged to have requested the drugs from Walter. Walter then sent a low-level runner to deliver the drugs to Mac.
Walter’s guilty plea is an admission that he knew the drugs he delivered to the rapper were more dangerous than a normal dose of Percoset. Prosecutors say the defendant knew the drugs were counterfeit knockoffs of oxycodone.
Stephen Walter now faces a maximum sentence of over 20 years in prison. If he were to be released, he would face a lifetime of supervision. Walter also faces a fine of $1 million. Prosecutors have recommended a lighter sentence of 17 years in prison and 5 years of supervised probation.
