In connection with the death of Mac Miller, the man was sentenced to more than 17 years in prison.
A member of the hitmakers “Self Care” – whose real name was Malcolm McCormick – died tragically in September 2018 from an accidental overdose, and on Monday (16.05.22) Stephen Walter was sent to federal prison for 210 months for his role in the crime.
According to court documents, Walter – who was also charged with ammunition possession – ordered co-defendant Ryan Revis to hand out fentanyl pills to another co-defendant, Cameron Petit, who in turn sold them to the rapper. .
Last October, Walter reached a plea agreement under which he would face up to 17 years in prison, but District Judge Otis D. Wright II called the sentence “too lenient” after it was revealed he continued to sell pills and cocaine until his arrest in 2019 and therefore sentenced him to 17 and a half years in prison and five years of supervised release.
Following the verdict, prosecutors read a statement from Mack’s mother Karen Meers, which was also read out last month when Revis was jailed for 10 years.
She said: “My life darkened the moment Malcolm left his world. Malcolm was my person, more than a son. We had a deep, special and irreplaceable bond and kinship. We talked about everything almost every day – his life, plans, music, dreams.
“His laughter was contagious and vivid. My love for him was unprecedented and I felt the same from him. He will never consciously take fentanyl pills. He wanted to live and was happy for the future. The hole in my heart will always be there. ”
Walter also went to court and insisted that he “really repented”, although he denied some reports of his alleged behavior.
He said: “My actions caused a lot of pain, and I sincerely regretted it. I’m not the type of person who wants to offend someone. It’s not me. But in the documents where it is written that I continued to conduct such behavior after learning that there was death, this is not true. “

The man further claimed that he did not know that the pills would end up in Maca.
He said: “I was dealing with Cameron Petit and he made me believe he was going to swallow the pills I sold him. He never told me anything about McCormick. He didn’t tell me he was going to deliver those pills to another person.
“I still take responsibility for everything that happened, but he never told me it was for another person.
“He had experience using these pills. I thought it was for him – for personal use. And then he delivered them to McCormick with cocaine and xanax, or something. I didn’t want to do that and didn’t intend to do anything else [sell to] Cameron Petit.
“And then two days later, when there was an overdose, Cameron never called me and said it had anything to do with him. So I had no idea anyone had passed. If I had known, I would not have continued such behavior. “
Walter’s lawyer confirmed that he has no plans to appeal his sentence.
