Marsha G. Bernard the common-law wife of Flippa Moggela was sentenced Friday to 21 years in prison for her role in an international drug ring.
Bernard, 34, was convicted at trial in December on charges of cocaine distribution, money laundering and conspiracy. She was part of a group that used the U.S. Postal Service and other delivery services to bring large amounts of cocaine from California to South Jersey, the state Attorney General's Office said.
Superior Court Judge John imposed a 15-year prison term, with six years of parole ineligibility for the distribution charge. Bernard faces a consecutive six-year term for money laundering under a sentence.
However, 37-year-old Andrew K. Davis aka Flippa Moggela who was found guilty along Marsha in December was granted a retrial. The new trial date is set for May 23.
Flippa Moggela’s brothers Kemar and Roger Davis are awaiting sentencing after the two accepted plea bargains.
