Flippa Mafia sentenced to 25 years in US prison
Dancehall artiste Andrew Davis, more popularly known as Flippa Mafia, was today sentenced to 25 Years in a US prison for his role in a drug ring that shipped cocaine into New Jersey through the mail.
The 37-year-old will not be eligible for parole for 12 years.
Superior Court Judge John T. Kelley handed down the sentence in Camden Superior Court in New Jersey this morning.
He also ordered Davis to pay a 250 thousand anti-money laundering profiteering penalty.
A Camden County jury found Davis guilty on December 17, 2015 of first-degree distribution of cocaine, second-degree money laundering, and second-degree conspiracy.
Davis was also charged with leading a narcotics trafficking network, but the jury could not reach a unanimous verdict on that charge.
He will face a new trial on that charge, which carries a sentence of life in prison, with 25 years of parole ineligibility.
Davis’ co-defendant, Marsha Bernard, was sentenced in February to 21 years in state prison, with six years of parole ineligibility.
The deejay’s brothers, Kemar and Roger Davis, previously pleaded guilty in the case and were sentenced in March.
Kemar was sentenced to 20 years in prison, with 12 years of parole ineligibility, and Roger was sentenced to 10 years, with three years of parole ineligibility.
Flippa Mafia was arrested in “Operation Next Day Air,” a multi-agency investigation led by the New Jersey State Police, Division of Criminal Justice and U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.
Six other defendants in Operation Next Day Air pleaded guilty and were sentenced to state prison sentences ranging from three years to 16 years.
