Fetty Wap Accepts Plea Deal
Fetty Wap has admitted his role in a multi-million-dollar drug trafficking ring to avoid a possible life sentence.
The platinum-selling rapper, whose real name is William Junior Maxwell II, entered a guilty plea in Long Island Federal Court on Monday in exchange for a minimum five year sentence in federal prison.
Fetty Wap’s Drug Trafficking Case
Fetty Wap was arrested by the FBI on October 28, 2021, before he was slated to take the stage at the Rolling Loud Festival in New York.
He is accused of distributing more than 100 kilograms of cocaine, heroin, fentanyl, and crack cocaine across Long Island and New Jersey.
Feds obtained $1.5 million in cash, 16 kilograms of cocaine, 2 kilograms of heroin, fentanyl pills, pistols, handguns, and a rifle.
As part of his bail package, Fetty put up his Georgia home and he was ordered to wear an ankle monitor.
On August 8, Long Island Federal Magistrate Judge Steven Locke revoked Fetty Wap’s $500,000 bond after the rapper allegedly pointed a firearm at a man over FaceTime and repeatedly said, “I’m going to kill you.”
The “Trap Queen” rapper’s two co-defendants, Anthony Cyntje, who worked as a New Jersey corrections officer, and Robert Leonardi, pleaded guilty in June.
