Fetty Wap will be sentenced to at least 5 years behind bars after pleading guilty to a federal drug charge

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Fetty Wap will be sentenced to at least 5 years behind bars after pleading guilty to a federal drug charge. 

According to NBC New York, Fetty pled guilty to a federal count of conspiracy to distribute and possess controlled substances. Federal officials announced that the charge carries at least a minimum of five years behind bars.

As previously reported, Fetty was one of many that were arrested last October as they were accused of distributing cocaine, heroin, fentanyl, and crack cocaine across Long Island and New Jersey. He was later released on a $500,000 bond. There are six others that were arrested as well, and they all face one count of conspiracy to distribute and possess controlled substances, they also face firearms charges except for Fetty.

The New York Post reports that Fetty’s attorney spoke out following the guilty plea and said: “He is not cooperating [with federal authorities]. I want that to be very, very clear. This is a standard plea.”

At a hearing Monday in Long Island federal court, Fetty Wap pleaded guilty to that charge – setting the stage for a potentially lengthy sentence. Prosecutors say he faces a minimum five-year sentence, but that guidelines call for between 7 and 9 years.

It’s unclear if the guilty plea was the result of a deal with prosecutors, which would typically mean he’s cooperating with the investigation and could receive a shorter prison sentence as a result. His attorney did not immediately return a request for comment on Monday.

The rapper was arrested in October at Rolling Loud New York after prosecutors unveiled an indictment against him and five others: Anthony Leonardi, Robert Leonardi, Brian Sullivan, Kavaughn Wiggins and Anthony Cyntje, a New Jersey corrections officer. At the time, prosecutors said the group had contributed to “the addiction and overdose epidemic we have seen time and time again tear people’s lives apart.”

“The fact that we arrested a chart-topping rap artist and a corrections officer as part of the conspiracy illustrates just how vile the drug trade has become,” FBI Assistant Director-in-Charge Michael J. Driscoll said in October.
