An Anchorage man described as an "enforcer" for a group of cocaine dealers moonlighting as hip hop artists received a sentence Tuesday of more than five years in prison.
Antonio "Wookie" Fleming, 35, claimed to be a business manager for Out Da Cutt Entertainment, a purported record label in Anchorage whose artists often rapped about selling drugs, according to the U.S. Attorneys Office. But Fleming was really the one responsible for collecting drug debts from customers, the federal prosecutors said.
According to a plea agreement, Fleming also arranged to bring hundreds of pounds of cocaine to Alaska between 2009 and 2012. He bought expensive cars and jewelry with the drug money, things that he has been ordered to forfeit, the court documents say.
On Tuesday, a judge sentenced Fleming to 52 months for his guilty plea on the drug trafficking charges and imposed another 18 months for a probation violation, according to prosecutors.
Fleming was just one of 13 members of the conspiracy, authorities said. As for the others, Christopher Anderson was sentenced to 14 months, DeMarr Moultrie to 40 months, Jeraelyn Hill to 66 months, Jerry Wormley to 36 months, Rock Phelps II to 18 months, Brent Gunnels to six months, Mihla Hall to 28 months, Joshua Mustovich to 87 months, and Dalon Johnson to 92 months.
Donnell Johnson, Tevoris Carter, Emma Shine, and Terrance Fleming have pleaded guilty and are awaiting sentencing.
