Three Men Indicted In Mac Miller's Death
The three men who were arrested in connection with Mac Miller’s death have been charged. According to the AP, a grand jury in California federal court indicted Cameron Pettit, Stephen Walter, and Ryan Reavis on Wednesday (October 2nd). The men were charged with conspiring and distributing cocaine and oxycodone pills laced with fentanyl, which caused Miller’s death.
Prosecutors claim that instead of getting oxycodone on September 5th, 2018, Miller received counterfeit drugs that contained fentanyl, which is a synthetic opiod that is 50 times more powerful than heroin. TMZ reports that the rapper crushed the pills, snorted them, and later died.
Pettit, Walter and Reavis were charged with conspiring to distribute controlled substances resulting in death, and distribution of fentanyl resulting in death. Each charge carries a mandatory minimum sentence of 20 years in federal prison and the potential of life without parole.
Walter received an additional charge, as he was previously convicted on a drug distribution charge. He was charged with being a felon in possession of ammunition and faces up to 10 years in prison.
