The entertainer, whose given name is Andrew Davis, was found guilty of first-degree distribution of cocaine, second-degree money laundering, and second-degree conspiracy in December 2015. The court was, however, unable to find him guilty on the leader of narcotics-trafficking network charge and a retrial was ordered.

"Andrew Davis's retrial is being postponed because his attorneys are trying to pursue an interlocutory appeal. In light of the fact that it will likely be a few more months before he is retried on the charge of leader of a narcotics-trafficking network, the judge decided to sentence him on June 3 for the crimes for which he already was convicted at the first trial -- first-degree distribution of cocaine, and second-degree conspiracy and money laundering," Peter Aseltine, Division of Criminal Justice press officer in New Jersey's Attorney General Office, told the Jamaica Observer.

A first-degree rap carries a sentence of 10 to 20 years, while the second degree has an incarceration period of five to 10 years.
