Ryan Michael Reavis, one of three drug dealers charged in connection with Mac Miller's 2018 death by fentanyl overdose, has been sentenced to 10 years and 11 months in prison by a Los Angeles federal judge. In October, Reavis' co-defendent Stephen Walter pleaded guilty to selling the fatal fentanyl-laced oxycodone pills to Reavis. Three weeks later, Reavis pleaded guilty to selling the pills to Miller's alleged dealer, Cameron Pettit, after previously entering a not guilty plea. Walter is still awaiting his sentence, and the case against Pettit is pending.
According to a Rolling Stone report, Reavis asked for a five-year sentence today, calling himself a "middle man" and claiming he hadn't known the pills he sold Pettit were laced. But after a statement from Mac's mother, Karen Meyers, Judge Otis D. Right II handed him a much heftier sentence, one slightly longer than Reavis' probation officials had recommended but shorter than the 12-and-a-half years U.S. prosecutors had requested.
