Ryan Reavis has received an 11 year prison sentence for supplying the drugs that would lead to the overdose death of musician Mac Miller. According to court documents Ryan Reavis supplied Cameron James Pettit Oxycodone pills that were laced with Fentanyl who would then give them to Mac Miller. Mac Miller whose real name was Malcolm James McCormick would take the pills a couple of days later and would pass away on September 7 2018. Part of the plea bargin is that Ryan Reavis admitted to knowing that the pills were laced with Fentanyl when he gave them to Cameron Pettit. Both Cameron Pettit and Stephen Andrew Walter were also charged. Stephen Andrew Walter would plead guilty and receive a 17 year prison sentence. Cameron Pettit is still before the courts.

A second defendant has agreed to plead guilty in the federal case involving the 2018 death of Mac Miller, Rolling Stone reports and Pitchfork can confirm via court documents. Ryan Michael Reavis, who previously pleaded not guilty, has now agreed to plead guilty to distribution of fentanyl.
In October, Stephen Andrew Walter also agreed to plead guilty to distribution of fentanyl. The case against Cameron James Pettit, who also previously pleaded not guilty, is pending.
Reavis’ plea agreement, viewed by Pitchfork, reasserts allegations from the federal grand jury indictment. The agreement reads:
On or about the September 4, 2018, in Los Angeles, California, within the Central District of California, at the direction of codefendant Stephen Andrew Walter, [Ryan Michael Reavis] knowingly distributed a controlled substance in the form of counterfeit oxycodone pills to Cameron James Pettit. [Reavis] knew that these pills that defendant provided to Pettit contained fentanyl or some other federally controlled substance; in fact, the pills contained fentanyl.
Shortly after [Reavis] distributed the pills to Pettit, Pettit distributed the pills containing fentanyl to [Mac Miller]. M.M. ingested the fentanyl supplied by Pettit, which, in combination with cocaine and alcohol, caused M.M.’s death from a fatal overdose on or about September 7, 2018. M.M. would not have died from an overdose but for the fentanyl contained in the pills that M.M. had received from Pettit (and that Pettit had received from [Reavis]) on September 4, 2018.
A Mac Miller representative offered no comment. Pitchfork has also reached out to attorneys for Cameron James Pettit and Ryan Michael Reavis

A man who pleaded guilty to supplying counterfeit fentanyl-laced pills to the drug dealer who sold them to rapper Mac Miller before the star died of an overdose has been sentenced to nearly 11 years in prison, officials announced Monday.
Former West Los Angeles resident, Ryan Michael Reavis, pleaded guilty last year to a single-count superseding information charging him with distribution of fentanyl.
Ryan Reavis was sentenced to 131 months in federal prison, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
He is one of three people charged in Miller’s overdose death.
Reavis, who moved to Arizona in 2019, distributed counterfeit oxycodone pills to co-defendant Cameron James Pettit, 30, of West Hollywood on Sept. 4, 2018, officials said.
He admitted to knowing that the pills contained fentanyl or some other controlled substance, according to the Department of Justice.
Shortly after Reavis supplied him with the fentanyl-laced pills, Pettit gave them to the 26-year-old rapper, whose real name was Malcolm James McCormick.
Miller got the pills about two days before he suffered the fatal drug overdose on Sept. 7, 2018.
Miller died from an accidental overdose due to a combination of alcohol and drugs, including fentanyl, the L.A. County coroner’s report said at the time.
