Fetty Wap pleads guilty to drug charges
On Monday, Fetty Wap pleaded guilty to drug charges before U.S. Magistrate Judge Steven Locke. He filed the lawsuit in Central Islip on Long Island.
Fetty Wap whose real name is William Junior Maxwell II was arrested last October. He was charged with, ‘conspiracy to distribute and possess controlled substances, including cocaine, fentanyl, and heroin.’
In addition, he did not ask to be released on bond and remained in jail.
According to the US Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York, there is currently no decision date.
Fetty and five other co-defendants were accused of using the US Postal Service to distribute more than 100 kilograms of illegal substances.
According to reports, they also used hidden parts in a vehicle to distribute to customers. They ran between June 2019 and June 2020 from the West Coast to Long Island and New Jersey.
Fetty Wap’s bond was revoked
Fetty Wap was released on $500,000 bond following his arrest at the time. However, his bond was revoked two weeks later by US Magistrate Steven Locke.
The Trap Queen performer violated the terms of her release by threatening to kill someone during a FaceTime call. In addition, he brandished a gun in front of the man.
Court papers listed the man as ‘John Doe.’
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 accused had a gun, threatened to kill him, and called him a ‘rat,’ even though this was a direct violation of state law and terms of delivery.’
The affidavit read that the FBI had collected a video recording showing the rapper, ‘holding a gun and pointing at John Doe’ during a FaceTime call.
Although, the affidavit said, ‘The defendant then told John Doe, “I’m going to kill you and all your friends.” He repeated it again.’
It added, ‘The defendant kept threatening John Doe, saying “I’m going to kill you.” It’s a threat that he delivers several times throughout the video call.’
