Flippa Mafia, who is currently serving a 25-year sentence for his drug trafficking conviction, spent Father’s Day with his kids in a New Jersey state prison.
A photo of the incarcerated Dancehall artist with his daughters surfaced on social media earlier this week.
The Jamaican recording artist, whose real name is Andrew Davis, was sentenced to 25 years in a US prison on June 3, 2016 for his role in a drug ring that shipped cocaine into New Jersey through the US mail service.
“Andrew Davis should have stuck with his music career instead of shipping cocaine, because now he’ll be performing in the prison hall instead of dance halls,” Superintendent of the New Jersey State Police, Colonel Rick Fuentes, said after sentence was handed down.
Davis was also ordered to pay a US$250,000 anti-money laundering profiteering penalty.
On December 17, 2015, a Camden County jury found Davis guilty of first-degree distribution of cocaine, second-degree money laundering, and second-degree conspiracy.
He will not be eligible for parole before spending 12 years in prison.
The deejay’s brothers, Kemar and Roger Davis, previously pleaded guilty too and was sentenced in March to 20 years in prison, and must serve 12 years before he becomes eligible for parole.
Roger Davis 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 US 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.
