Fetty Wap pleads guilty to drug conspiracy
On Monday, Fetty Wap pleaded guilty to conspiracy on drug charges before US Magistrate Judge Steven Locke. He filed the lawsuit in Central Islip, Long Island.
Fetty Wap, whose real name is William Junior Maxwell II, was taken into custody last October. He was charged with “conspiracy to distribute and possess controlled substances, including cocaine, fentanyl and heroin.”
Moreover, he did not ask to be released from custody and remains in custody.
According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York, there is currently no sentencing date scheduled.
Fetty and five other co-defendants were charged with using the US Postal Service to distribute more than 100 kilograms of illegal substances.
They also reportedly used hidden compartments in the vehicle to distribute them to dealers. They conducted it between June 2019 and June 2020 from the West Coast to Long Island and New Jersey.
Fetty Wap’s volume has been cancelled
Fetty Wap was released on $500,000 bail following his arrest at the time. Two weeks later, however, his detention was revoked by US Judge Steven Locke.
The Trap Queen artist allegedly violated the terms of his release by threatening to kill someone during a FaceTime call. In addition, he also waved a weapon in front of the person.
The person was listed as “John Doe” in the court papers.
FBI Special Agent Derek Wonderland said in an affidavit, “According to John Doe, the FaceTime call took place on December 11, 2021.”
He added: “And in the call, the defendant had a gun, threatened to kill the individual and called the individual a ‘rat,’ even though this was in direct violation of both state law and the conditions of his release.”
The affidavit states that the FBI collected video footage showing the rapper “holding a gun and pointing it at John Doe” during a FaceTime call.
Regardless, the affidavit claimed: ‘The defendant then tells John Doe, ‘Imma kill you and everybody you’re with.’ Then he will repeat it once more.’
It further stated: “The defendant then proceeds to threaten John Doe by saying, “I’m going to kill you. A threat that he repeats several more times during the video call.”
