After acknowledging his role in the operation of a narcotics trafficking network, RAPPER Fetty Wap is looking at a minimum sentence of five years in prison.
According to court documents, the celebrity was charged with conspiracy to possess and distribute, carrying a sentence of five to forty years, after he was caught with heroin, fentanyl, and cocaine.
Wap, whose real name is Willie Maxwell II, pleaded guilty in front of Judge Steven I. Locke at the federal courthouse in Central Islip, Long Island.
“I agreed to distribute cocaine with others,” he allegedly stated.
“He is uncooperative. His attorney, Elizabeth Macedonio, told reporters that his plea is customary.
According to prosecutors, Wap moved the cocaine from Long Island to New Jersey.
According to RadarOnline, he was one of six persons who were taken into custody by FBI officials on October 28 as they were attending the Rolling Loud music event in New York.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) subsequently made public many photographs depicting the drugs and money that were allegedly recovered in connection with Fetty’s “drug ring.”
According to the records filed with the court, the defendants were responsible for the distribution of more than 100 kilograms of cocaine, heroin, fentanyl, and crack cocaine over Long Island and New Jersey between roughly June 2019 and June 2020.
Defendants Anthony Leonardi, Robert Leonardi, Brian Sullivan, and Kavaugah Wiggins are accused of obtaining the drugs from the West Coast, mailing them, and using drivers with concealed compartments to convey them to Suffolk County, New York.
After that, the drugs were allegedly dispersed to several traffickers located all across Long Island and in the state of New Jersey, as stated by the prosecution.
Wap was a “kilogram-level trafficker”
After executing search warrants, prosecutors discovered $1.5 million in cash, 16 kilograms of cocaine, 2 kilograms of heroin, many fentanyl tablets, two 9mm handguns, a rifle, a.45 caliber pistol, a.40 caliber pistol, and ammunition.
According to the paperwork filed in this case, on August 9 a federal judge decided that Wap should have his bond revoked for “brandishing a gun and threatening to kill someone on the other end of a video conference call.”
