Mac Miller passed away at the too-young age of 26 after a fatal drug overdose. His dealer entered a guilty plea to federal distribution charges in late October. That person, Stephen Walter, now says he had no idea what was in the pills that caused the Pittsburgh rapper’s early death.

The NY Post reported on the court proceedings, in which Walter admitted that the pills were counterfeit. He said he didn’t know what was in them. He admitted to aiding and abetting the fatal transaction that led to Miller’s tragic passing.

“I was charged with selling blue pills, little blue counterfeit oxycontin pills … and I didn’t know what was in them. I didn’t know, like, fentanyl was in it. But I do say, yes, that I aided and abetted the transaction.”

Miller was given the two pills that killed him on September 5, 2018. He ingested them on September 7 at his Studio City home. The counterfeit Oxycodone pills contained fentanyl, one of the most potent painkillers known to exist.

Walter said he had no direct ties with Mac. He delivered the pills to an intermediary who then delivered them to the star. He didn’t know the pills would wind up in the hands of a celebrity.

Ryan Reavis, the third-party who delivered the drugs to Miller, changed his plea from not guilty to guilty at the hearing. Walter will be sentenced in March of 2022. Reavis is due back in court on April 4. The pair face a maximum sentence of twenty years in prison, a lifetime on supervised release, and a massive $1 million fine.
