Last month, 28-year-old Cameron James Pettit was arrested in connection to the 2018 death of Mac Miller. Authorities allege that Pettit “delivered counterfeit oxycodone pills that contained fentanyl—a dangerous synthetic opioid—cocaine, and Xanax” to Miller, who died from a toxic mix of fentanyl, cocaine, and alcohol two days later. Now, Pettit has pleaded not guilty, as the Associated Press reports.
Under his current conspiracy and drug distribution charges, Pettit faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 20 years in federal prison and the possibility of life in prison without parole if he is convicted. Two other men arrested on drug charges in connection to Miller’s death—Ryan Reavis and Stephen “Stevie” Walter—are also facing similar charges and potential sentences. Reavis nor Walter have yet to plead.
