Kemar Davis, the brother of Flippa Moggela convicted for his part in smuggling cocaine to New Jersey was sentenced Friday to 20 years in state prison.
Kemar and others were directed by Andrew Davis aka Flippa Moggela to ship cocaine from California to New Jersey, where it was then distributed to dealers, investigators said. Prosecutors said that an investigation dubbed "Operation Next Day Air" run by state and federal officials netted 26 kilograms of cocaine, more than $500,000 in cash and two handguns.
Kemar and Roger Davis both pleaded guilty and Roger was sentenced to 10 years in state prison for drug charges.
Andrew Davis (Flippa Moggela) was convicted after a seven-week trial in December. He faces 10 to 20 years in state prison for the cocaine distribution charge and five to 10 years in prison for money laundering and conspiracy charges. A mistrial was declared on a charge that he led a drug trafficking network.
"This case sends a powerful message to drug traffickers who sell addiction, misery and death into our communities — no matter where you live, we're going to investigate you, track you down, and bring you to justice," New Jersey acting Attorney General John Hoffman said in a statement.
A co-defendant in the Camden County trial, Marsha Bernard, the common-law wife of Andrew Davis, was sentenced last month to 21 years in prison. Prosecutors say she received large cocaine shipments that she distributed to other drug traffickers.
Six other defendants pleaded guilty and were sentenced to between three and 16 years in state prison.
