Fetty Wap pleads guilty to drug conspiracy and faces five years in prison.


Rapper Fetty Wap faces at least five years in prison after pleading guilty to federal drug charges.

Here’s everything you need to know.

Fetty Wap pleads guilty to drug conspiracy.

On Monday, Petty Wap pleaded guilty to drug charges before US Magistrate Stephen Locke. He pleaded in court on Long Island’s Central Islip.

Fetty Wap, real name William Junior Maxwell II, was detained last October. He was charged with “conspiracy to distribute and possess controlled substances, including cocaine, fentanyl and heroin.”

Also, he did not ask for bail and remains in custody.

According to the United States, the District Attorney’s Office for the Eastern New York District said there is currently no scheduled sentencing date.

Fetty and five other co-defendants were charged with using the US Postal Service to distribute more than 100 kg of illegal drugs.

According to reports, they also used the vehicle’s hidden compartments for distribution to dealers. They did this from the West Coast to Long Island and New Jersey between June 2019 and June 2020.

Fetty Wap’s bond has been canceled.

Fetty Wap was released on a $500,000 security deposit after being arrested at the time. However, two weeks later his bail was withdrawn by US Magistrate Stephen Locke.

The Trap Queen performer is suspected of violating release conditions by threatening to kill someone during a FaceTime call. Besides, he wields a gun in front of that person.

The court papers listed the person as ‘John Doe’.

FBI Special Agent Derek Wonderland stated in an affidavit that “According to John Doe, the FaceTime call occurred on December 11, 2021.”

‘And in the call, the defendant was in possession of a gun and threatened to kill him, calling an individual a ‘rat’ despite a direct violation of state law and conditions of release,” he added.

The affidavit reads that the FBI had collected video recordings of the rapper ‘pointing at John Doe with a gun’ during a FaceTime call.

Nevertheless, the affidavit says, ‘The defendant tells John Doe, “I will kill you and everyone with you.” Then repeat one more time.’

‘The defendant continued to threaten John Doe and said, “I will kill you.” He repeated the threats over and over throughout the video call.’
