A second man was sentenced to prison for his role in the death of Mac Miller.
Last year, Stephen Walter pleaded guilty to distributing fentanyl. The 49-year-old man was one of three drug dealers arrested for supplying fentanyl-laced pills, which caused Mac Miller’s fatal overdose.
Stephen Walter apologized to Mac Miller’s family at Monday’s hearing.
“My actions caused a lot of pain, and for that, I’m truly remorseful,” he said. “I’m not that type of person who wants to hurt anybody. That’s not me.”
Stephen Walter became the second dealer to be sentenced in the Mac Miller case. Ryan Reavis, who also pleaded guilty to distributing fentanyl, was sentenced to 131 months in federal prison in April.
The case against the third dealer, Cameron Pettit, is still pending.
Stephen Walter said he thought Cameron Pettit obtained the drugs for personal use. He claimed he was never told anything about the pills being sold to Mac Miller.
“I’m still taking responsibility for everything that happened, but [Cameron Pettit] never told me it was for another person,” he explained. “He was experienced in using those pills. I thought it was for him … And then he delivered them to [Mac Miller] with cocaine and Xanax, or whatever.”
He continued, “I was not willing to do that and had no intent to do anything else other than [sell to] Cameron Pettit. And then two days later, when there was an overdose, Cameron never called me and told me about it, that he had anything to do with him. So, I had no idea that somebody had passed.”
Mac Miller died in 2018. He was 26.
