3:09 PM PT — A rep for the U.S. Attorney’s Office for Eastern District of NY has just clarified part of Fetty’s plea, telling us, “Count One of the superseding indictment references multiple controlled substances, but the defendant pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute and possess cocaine only.”
Fetty Wap will be sentenced to at least 5 years behind bars after pleading guilty to a federal drug charge.
Fetty was in court Monday where he pled guilty to one count of intent to distribute controlled substances including cocaine, heroin and fentanyl for his arrest back in October.
Two of his co-defendants, Robert Leonardi and Anthony Cyntje pleaded guilty to the same count, in addition to firearms charges.
According to a rep for the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York … the 31-year-old rap star faces a mandatory minimum sentence of five years in prison. Officials are estimating he’ll serve anywhere between 87-108 months … but he can’t get less than the 5-year minimum. We’re told Fetty is currently in custody.
TMZ broke the story … Fetty was traveling for Rolling Loud New York when feds apprehended him and his co-defendants and accused them of using USPS trucks to smuggle drugs. Over the course of their investigation, feds say they uncovered $1.5 million in cash, 16 kilograms of cocaine, 2 kilograms of heroin, fentanyl pills and several guns.
Fetty also has another case pending … for allegedly making death threats during a December 2021 Facetime call.
