A man has been sentenced to nearly 11 years in prison for his involvement in the death of rapper Mac Miller.
Ryan Reavis was sentenced to 131 months for aiding in supplying the late rapper with fentanyl-laced pills. Miller died at the age of 26 from accidental mixed drug toxicity.
Reavis‘ lawyer says that he was unaware that he gave Miller pills that were laced with fentanyl.

“This is a very tragic and difficult case,” Ryan Revis‘ attorney Cori Ferrentino told E! News. “Mac Miller was loved and admired by so many. He fought many of the same demons related to addiction that Mr. Reavis has fought his whole life. It is not lost on Mr. Reavis for one minute that he will be able to return to his family and Mac Miler will not.”
“Mr Reavis was an addict who had no idea the pills he delivered to a co-defendant contained fentanyl,” the lawyer added. “Today, the judge spent a significant amount of time listening to the arguments and we are grateful for that.”
“He will continue to utilize this time to grow in his recovery and to honor the life lost in whatever way he can,” the lawyer said. “We strongly believe longer periods of incarceration for the addict/runner will not solve the fentanyl crisis.”
Mac‘s ex-girlfriend Ariana Grande has opened up about what he left behind after his death.
