Mac Miller was a promising young rapper who was starting to receive massive fan following. All of a sudden, the rapper was found dead after a supposed drug overdose. Miller passed away at the young age of 26, leaving his fans and people close to him in dismay.

Miller’s death was considered to be due to a drug overdose, but it was later found out that the pills the rapper had consumed were laced with fentanyl. One of the drug dealers who were responsible for Miller getting fentanyl-laced pills has received his sentence, and it’s a long one.

TMZ reports that Ryan Reavis has received the sentence to spend 10 years and 11 months behind bars. Reavis pled guilty back in November to one count of distribution of fentanyl. The dealer had previously asked for a 5 years sentence, while the prosecutors sought to argue for 12.5 years.

Reavis was deemed responsible for supplying the pills to Miller’s drug dealer, Cameron Pettit, according to the feds. Stephen Walter, who recently pled guilty as well, had ordered the supply. Reavis claimed in the court that he was just a middle man in an otherwise huge chain of transactions.

The dealer also said in court that he had no idea that the supply coming to him consisted counterfeit drugs. The judge heard a statement from Mac Miller’s mother Karen Meyers at the trial, and then went with the 10 years and 11 months long sentence for the dealer.
