Rapper Fetty Wap sentenced to 6 years in prison for drug trafficking


Fetty Wap, whose real name is Willie Junior Maxwell II, has been sentenced to six years in federal prison for his involvement in a drug trafficking scheme. 

He pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute and possess controlled substances, specifically cocaine. Maxwell was part of an organization that distributed more than 100 kilograms of cocaine, heroin, fentanyl, and crack cocaine across Long Island and New Jersey from June 2019 through June 2020.

 Prosecutors alleged that the group obtained the narcotics on the West Coast and used the postal service and drivers with hidden vehicle compartments to transport the drugs across the country to Suffolk County for storage. 

From there, the drugs were distributed to dealers who sold them in Long Island and New Jersey.

Maxwell was a "kilogram-level redistributor" for the organization, according to prosecutors. In addition to his prison sentence, Maxwell was also sentenced to five years of post-release supervision.
