Ryan Reavis, one of the men who supplied Mac Miller with the fentanyl-laced pills that led to his overdose has been sentenced to 10 years and 11 months in prison.

Ryan Reavis — who pleaded guilty to one felony count of distributing fentanyl — was one of three charged in the rapper’s September 2018 fatal overdose.

Reavis, 39, requested a five-year sentence, claiming he was just a middle man and had no idea that the pills he supplied were laced. Prosecutors requested his sentence be 12 and a half years.

Before the judge handed down Reavis’ sentence on Monday, Miller’s mother, Karen Meyers, addressed the court.


“My life went dark the moment Malcolm left his world. Malcolm was my person, more than a son. We had a bond and kinship that was deep and special and irreplaceable. We spoke nearly every day about everything – his life, plans, music, dreams”.

She insisted her son, born Malcolm James McCormick, “would never knowingly take a pill with fentanyl, ever. He wanted to live and was excited about the future.”

“The hole in my heart will always be there,” she added.

Reavis was arrested in September 2019 after cops raided his home in Lake Havasu City and found a doctor’s prescription pad, unspecified pills available only via prescription, drug paraphernalia and a “usable” amount of marijuana.

Reavis pleaded guilty in November 2021, while Stephen Walter — who was also charged with one felony count of distributing fentanyl — also pleaded guilty but has not yet been sentenced.

Meanwhile, the case for the third man who was charged, Cameron Pettit, is still ongoing.

Miller died at age 26 at his home in Los Angeles from an overdose of alcohol, cocaine and fentanyl.
