Another man has been convicted of a role in a deadly overdose of rapper Mack Miller in 2018. On Monday, Stephen Andrew Walter, who was responsible for supplying fatal counterfeit oxycodone tablets with fentanyl, was sentenced to more than 17 years in prison.
According to NBC News, Walter was one of three men accused of Mack’s death, which occurred back in September 2018. The U.S. Attorney General’s Office for the Central District of California has said he pleaded guilty last year to one article on the distribution of fentanyl. As previously reported, prosecutors say, Walter instructed Ryan Michael Reeves to distribute drugs to one of Cameron’s defendants, James Petit, who then sold the drug to Mac.
Prosecutors said Walter continued to distribute drugs after Mack’s death. Rolling Stone reports that last year Walter agreed to a 17-year prison term, however, because the deal was below federal recommendations and because he continued to sell drugs, a judge decided not to accept his plea deal.
Judge Otis D. Wright, II said
“The court decided not to accept this plea agreement. So, sir, if you wish, at this point you can withdraw your guilty plea and go to court. I can also lay it out, well. If you continue to engage in this activity even after your activity has killed someone, it is difficult for me not to follow the guidelines. “
Walter agreed to receive a larger sentence.
Last month was Ryan Michael Reeves sentenced up to 131 months in prison for involvement in drug distribution that led to Mack’s overdose. Mack died of “mixed drug toxicity,” which included cocaine, fentanyl, and alcohol.
