Rapper Fetty Wap Pleads Guilty To Drugs Charges And Faces A Minimum Of Five Years In Prison

 

Trap Queen rapper Fetty Wap has pleaded guilty to running an illicit drug operation in both New York and his native New Jersey, after cops fittingly busted the hip-hop artist with bricks of cocaine and heroine in a Long Island trap house.

The 31-year-old rapper, whose real name is Willie Junior Maxwell II, will now face a minimum of five years in jail for his part in the drug trafficking ring. He was previously charged with conspiring to distribute hard drugs including cocaine and heroin.

The much-talked about bust saw feds who arrested Maxwell walk away with several bricks of the substances that contained the drugs, but the synthetic opioid fentanyl – a dangerous substance 50-100 times stronger than morphine – as well as $1.5million in cash.

Feds subsequently accused the embattled star of supplementing his recording income with ‘kilo-level’ drug dealing, a federal complaint against Maxwell reads – and proceeded to build a case against the star.

After his arrest, Maxwell was released on a $500,000 personal recognizance bond – however, last week, the rapper was arrested again after allegedly threatening to kill a man who may have helped feds in their efforts over a Facetime call.

On Monday, Maxwell appeared in Federal Court in Central Islip to plead guilty to to conspiracy to distribute and possess cocaine, which could see him put behind bars for up to nine years.

The minimum sentence for those charges, which include not only distributing the drug but also felony-level possession with intent to distribute, would see the star jailed for no less than five years.
