Incarcerated deejay Flippa Mafia has found himself in more trouble, as he is set to appear in the Cumberland County Supreme Court on February 21 to answer to charges of aggravated assault.
THE STAR has learnt that the entertainer, whose real name is Andrew Davis, has been slapped with charges following an altercation between himself and a corrections officer at the South Woods State Prison, where he is currently being held.
Davis is said to have attacked the officer in an incident that happened in July, 2016. The incident occurred after he was sentenced and taken into custody on June 3, 2016.
Various online reports state that Davis was indicted by a Cumberland County Grand Jury on January 11. Photos of the officer’s bruised face have also been circulating on the Internet.
Davis, who performed under the names ‘Flippa Mafia’ and ‘Flippa Moggela’, was found guilty of first-degree distribution of cocaine, second-degree money laundering, and second-degree conspiracy on December 17, 2015, and was sentenced to 25 years in prison. He will not be eligible for parole until September 2025.
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 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.
