According to court documents obtained by OK!, Stephen Walter entered a guilty plea in federal court for the fentanyl charge. The additional charge against him — conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance — was dropped.

Prosecutors in the case are reportedly seeking 17 years in prison and 5 years supervised release. By having Walter plead guilty, prosecutors want to make it clear that he was fully aware that he was selling counterfeit oxycodone pills laced with fentanyl.

Prosecutors claim that Walter — who was already on supervised release from a previous drug case — supplied Mac's alleged dealer, Cameron James Pettit, with the Percocet tablets that led the "Donald Trump" artist to overdose in 2018.

According to TMZ, Pettit allegedly asked Walter for the drugs for Miller. After filling the request, Walter allegedly then sent a runner to drop them off at the musician's home that night.

On September 7, 2018, the “Self Care” rapper — whose real name was Malcolm James Myers McCormick — was found face down and unresponsive in his Studio City home in California after “having suffered blunt trauma to his head, with a quarter-inch abrasion on the bridge of his nose, and blood in his right nostril.” The star was pronounced dead at the scene.

In November 2018, the 26-year-old's cause of death was revealed to be an accidental drug overdose of cocaine and fentanyl.
