Written by Rika C on May 25, 2023
American rapper Fetty Wap has been given a six-year sentence for his role in a drug trafficking ring across the tri-state region.
Fetty Wap had pleaded guilty to the charges- conspiring to distribute and possess controlled substances and using firearms in connection with drug trafficking. Following his arrest in October 2021, the Suffolk County Police Department (SCPD) revealed that the Paterson rapper and five others allegedly operated a drug ring that transported many dangerous drugs through USPS trucks to the tri-state area. On Wednesday, Fetty Wap, whose real name is Willie Junior Maxwell II, was sentenced to six years in prison despite a motion by the prosecution for him to be sentenced to nine (9) years in prison, The New York Times reported. He has been incarcerated since October 2021 and is likely to be credited for time served.
