Fetty Wap has finally receieved a sentencing date for his drug trafficking conviction.
According to court documents obtained by AllHipHop, Fetty Wap will be sentenced on January 18, 2023.
In August, the rapper pleaded guilty to a conspiracy drug charge and now he’s facing up to five years in prison.
He was arrested last October on charges alleging he was part of a drug ring that smuggled heroin, fentanyl and other drugs into the New York City area. Fetty pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute and possess controlled substances. If he had not taken a plea deal and was found guilty, he would have faced life in prison.
“I agreed with other people to distribute cocaine,” he told the judge. “I knew the conduct was illegal.”
“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 at the time. “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.”
