When you are in a United States prison doing time for cocaine distribution, the last thing you want to do is get into a fight with a prison guard. If you fight a prison guard while doing your time, you can rest assured that you will not get early release for good behavior. As a matter of fact, you could be charged and convicted for assault and as a result get more time added to your stay in prison.
Somehow Flippa Mafia did not get that memo or he got it but ignored it. This week, the reggae artist got charged with assaulting a prison guard.
The deejay is to answer to charges of aggravated assault when he makes his appearance in the Cumberland County Supreme Court on February 21.
He allegedly assaulted the corrections officer on July 26. The incident happened a few weeks after he was sent to the facility to serve his prison term.
A Cumberland County Grand Jury last week indicted Flippa Mafia for a charge of aggravated assault.
The 37-year-old, who will not be eligible for parole for 12 years, was found Davis guilty on December 17, 2015 of first-degree distribution of cocaine, second-degree money laundering, and second-degree conspiracy.
Flippa Mafia 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.
