EXCLUSIVE: Mac Miller's Alleged Drug Dealer's Trial Date Is Officially Set
(AllHipHop News) One of the men indicted for selling deadly drugs to the late Mac Miller will be standing trial next month.
Earlier this week, Cameron Pettit appeared before Judge Frederick F. Mumm, who set his trial to start next month, at the end of November.
Pettit was detained on September 4 for selling Mac Miller Adderall, Xanax, Oxycodone, and Hydrocodone.
The DEA alleges Mac Miller bought the drugs from Pettit, which were delivered by a prostitute the rap star was patronizing, shortly before he overdosed on September 7, 2018.
An autopsy showed Mac Miller, real name Malcolm James McCormick, overdosed after snorting a mixture of fentanyl and cocaine in his San Fernando Valley home.
Cameron Pettit is the third man charged in connection to Mac Miller's tragic death.
On September 23, the cops and DEA agents in Lake Havasu, Arizona arrested a 36-year-old man named Ryan Reavis for his role in supplying the drugs.
The same day, the DEA charged another man named Stephen "Stevie" Walter, who is accused of providing Pettit with the drugs that contained the fentanyl Mac Miller overdosed on.
“Fentanyl disguised as a genuine pharmaceutical is a killer – which is being proven every day in America,” said United States Attorney Nick Hanna. “Drugs laced with cheap and potent fentanyl are increasingly common, and we owe it to the victims and their families to aggressively target the drug dealers that cause these overdose deaths.”
Cameron Pettit has pleaded not guilty to one count of distribution of a controlled substance and faces up to 20 years in federal prison if he is convicted.
Pettit will face the jury on November 26, 2019 at 9:00 am, with District Judge Otis D. Wright II presiding over the trial.
