It looks like Jimmy “Henchman” Rosemond’s current legal situation may get worse before it gets any better. Now, one of Rosemond’s associates and top members of his cocaine distribution organization is striking a plea deal with the prosecutors in the case.
TheSmokingGun.com reports that Khalil Abdullah, a member of the rap mogul’s Rosemond drug trafficking racket, is close to signing a plea deal with prosecutors. But before he officially inks the deal, Abdullah must forfeit $100,000 over to the DEA that he stole from the Rosemond Organization.
Abdullah’s theft was the first incident in the case that ultimately led to Jimmy Henchman’s indictment. Soon after, he began cooperating with the DEA, tipping them off to specific deals and the Rosemond Organization’s use of FedEx delivery services to ship quantities of cocaine and cash cross-country.
Abdullah, who is facing a 10-year prison sentence for his involvement in the drug ring, is looking to receive a lesser punishment for his testimony.
Henchman was apprehended by authorities on charges of distributing illegal narcotics on June 20, to which he later plead not guilty to the charges in a Brooklyn court. Rosemond is also being investigated for the 2010 murder of Lowell “Lodi Mack” Fletcher, an associate of 50 Cent who reportedly smacked Rosemond’s son in 2007. He was also reportedly behind the 1994 robbery and attempted murder of Tupac Shakur.
