Fetty Wap Has A Sentencing Date For Cocaine Trafficking - WhatsOnRap

EXCLUSIVE: Fetty Wap Gets Sentencing Date For Dealing Cocaine

Fetty Wap's sentence for a federal drug charge will be announced within a few months. Fetty Wap will be punished on January 18, 2023.  The judgment will be handled by Judge Joanna Seybert.

In August, Fetty Wap, actual name Willie Junior Maxwell II, pled guilty to conspiracy to possess and distribute 500 grams or more of cocaine. The charge carries a mandatory minimum jail term of five years.

The rapper faces a maximum term of 40 years in prison. He waived his right to appeal if he is sentenced to less than ten years and one month in jail.

In October 2021, Fetty Wap and five others were arrested and charged for their duties in a drug trafficking band. Although several drugs were mentioned in the indictment, Fetty Wap was only charged with conspiracy to possess and distribute cocaine.

“The pipeline of drugs in this investigation ran thousands of miles from the West Coast to the communities here in our area, contributing to the addiction and overdose epidemic we have seen time and time again tear people’s lives apart,” FBI Assistant Director-in-Charge Michael J. Driscoll said. “The fact that we arrested a chart-topping rap artist and a corrections officer as part of the conspiracy illustrates just how vile the drug trade has become. I want to commend the work of our Long Island Gang Task Force and our law enforcement partners for working day in and day out to get these deadly drugs off our streets.”

Following his arrest last year, Fetty Wap was freed on a $500,000 bail. A court revoked his bail last month for breaking the rules of his pretrial release.

On a FaceTime chat in December 2021, Fetty Wap reportedly threatened to murder someone. After authorities received a tape of the discussion, his bail was revoked.
