– Fetty Wap pleads guilty to complicity in drug trafficking in the United States
The interpreter of the tube “Trap Queen”, charged in a vast drug trafficking in Long Island, pleaded guilty on Monday. He faces a minimum sentence of five years in prison.
American rapper Fetty Wap pleaded guilty Monday in federal court to aiding and abetting drug trafficking and remains in custody pending his sentencing to prison.
Real name William Junior Maxwell II, the 31-year-old artist, known worldwide since his 2015 hit “Trap Queen”, has been sued near New York since the end of October for his alleged participation in a vast drug trafficking in Long Island.
The rapper pleaded guilty to aiding and abetting the distribution and possession of cocaine in federal court in Central Islip, in the center of the gigantic island of Long Island, east of New York City.
Avoid a lawsuit
According to American criminal procedure, the 30-year-old was indicted by a grand jury (which participates in the investigation and the indictment) and then pleaded guilty to avoid a trial. He thus faces a minimum sentence of five years in prison instead of risking a life sentence if he had been found guilty by a court of all the charges.
Fetty Wap has not requested bail and therefore remains in detention until his prison sentence is pronounced, according to the American federal justice.
The rapper had been arrested and implicated at the end of October with five individuals. They were accused of transporting, distributing and selling more than 100 kg of drugs, including heroin and fentanyl, a powerful synthetic opiate, in Long Island and New Jersey from June 2019 to June 2020. During the searches, the police seized nearly 1.5 million dollars in cash, 16 kg of cocaine, two kg of heroin, numerous fentanyl pills and several weapons.
Arrested by the FBI on October 28 in Long Island in the area of a festival where he was to perform, Fetty Wap was prosecuted for having served as a “distributor” in this drug trafficking.
This is not Fetty Wap’s first run-in with the law. Accused of assaulting three hotel employees, he was arrested by police in 2019. He was also charged with drunk driving in 2017.
