The cocaine dealer who supplied Mac Miller was sentenced to nearly 11 years in prison.

Ryan Michael Reavis, one of three heroin dealers charged in Mac Miller’s fatal fentanyl overdose in 2018, received a nearly 11-year sentence.

U.S. District Judge Otis D. Wright sentenced Ryan Michael Reavis to ten years and eleven months in prison during a hearing in federal court in Los Angeles. The verdict comes six months after he agreed to plead guilty to a single count of fentanyl distribution with prosecutors.

Federal prosecutors had sought a sentence of 12 years and seven months for Reavis, who admitted to supplying a narcotics dealer with counterfeit oxycodone pills, who then sold them to Miller. Reavis’ lawyers contended that he only deserved five years in prison, with the possibility of a lengthier or supervised release.

Miller’s mother, Karen Meyers, spoke to the court before the judge handed down Reavis’ sentence on Monday.

“The moment Malcolm left his world, my existence became dark.” Malcolm was more than a son to me. We shared a deep, unique, and irreplaceable link and kinship. We talked about everything — his life, aspirations, music, and dreams – almost every day.”

The counterfeit oxycodone pills that killed the 26-year-old rapper were delivered by Reavis to a fellow dealer.

Reavis told Rolling Stone that he was a middleman who didn’t realize the pills were contaminated with fentanyl until he was arrested a year later in Arizona. At the time, he was apparently still distributing pills.

On Monday, April 18, Reavis reportedly told the court, “I know that whatever happens today, I’m the lucky one because my family is here and I’m here and I’ll be with them again.” “I’m in a bad mood. This isn’t my personality. My viewpoint has shifted. “Something has happened to my heart.” Reavis requested five years in prison, while probation officers recommended twelve and a half years.
