The rapper Fetty Wap (legal name Willie Junior Maxwell II) was sentenced to spend six years in prison and five years of post-release supervision on Wednesday for conspiring to distribute cocaine. He is the second of the six defendants to be sentenced in this case.

“On March 7, 2023, Judge Seybert sentenced Maxwell’s co-defendant Anthony Cyntje, a New Jersey correction officer, to 72 months’ imprisonment for his role in the drug trafficking conspiracy,” wrote prosecutors out of the Eastern District of New York. “Maxwell’s remaining four co-defendants pleaded guilty and are awaiting sentencing.”

The remaining four are Anthony Leonardi, 49, Robert Leonardi, 28, Brian Sullivan, 27, and Kavaughn L. Wiggins, 28.
