New Haven Man Pleads Guilty to Crack Cocaine Conspiracy Charges
|U.S. Attorney’s Office April 30, 2013|
David B. Fein, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that Jayren Wynn, 23, also known as “Rich Boy,” of New Haven, pleaded guilty today before United States Magistrate Judge Donna F. Martinez in Hartford to two counts of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute 28 grams or more of cocaine base (“crack cocaine”).
According to court documents and statements made in court, this matter stems from an investigation conducted by the FBI New Haven Safe Streets Task Force into drug distribution and related gang activity in The Hill neighborhood of New Haven. The investigation, which included the use of court-authorized wiretaps and several purchases of crack directly from Wynn, revealed that members and associates of the Southside Bloods were distributing large quantities of crack cocaine. Wynn was involved in two separate drug distribution rings associated with the Southside Bloods.
Wynn is scheduled to be sentenced by Chief United States District Judge Alvin W. Thompson on August 2, 2013, at which time Wynn faces a minimum term of imprisonment of five years and a maximum term of imprisonment of 40 years.
This matter is being investigated by the FBI’s New Haven Safe Streets Task Force, including the New Haven, Hamden, and Milford Police Departments and the State of Connecticut Department of Correction. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Anthony E. Kaplan and H. Gordon Hall.
