One of the men charged with distributing the drugs that caused Mac Miller’s fatal overdose said he did not know the pills he distributed to the hip-hop star were laced with fentanyl.

Stephen Andrew Walter, 46, pleaded guilty on Tuesday in a video conference to one felony count of distributing fentanyl.

Before entering his plea, Walter told federal Judge Otis D. Wright he never met Miller and didn’t know what happened to the drugs that he gave Ryan Michael Reavis to sell.

“I was charged with selling blue pills, little blue counterfeit oxycontin pills … and I didn’t know what was in them,” Walter said to the judge. “I didn’t know, like, fentanyl was in it. But I do say, yes, that I aided and abetted the transaction.”

Mac Miller was given the pills two days before the singer’s fatal drug overdose on Sept. 7, 2018 at his home in Studio City, Calif., according to court papers.

According to the indictment, Cameron James Pettit agreed to sell Miller 10 “blues” — the street name for Oxycodone pills — as well as cocaine and Xanax on the night of Sept. 4, 2018.

Pettit allegedly handed Miller, whose real name is Malcolm James McCormick, the counterfeit oxycodone pills that contained fentanyl, a powerful painkiller which is 50 times more potent than heroin.

During Tuesday’s hearing, prosecutors said Walter knew the pills he gave to Reavis contained fentanyl.

“I never met [Miller] before,” Walter said. “I only talked to Cameron. I didn’t know what his intentions were with the pills. After he saw Ryan Reavis, I didn’t know what he was going to do with them.”

Walter’s sentencing is scheduled for March 7, 2022. He faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in federal prison, a lifetime of supervised release, a $1 million fine and other court fees.

Reavis is also scheduled to appear in Los Angeles federal court later Tuesday to also plead guilty.
