Flippa Moggela remains behind bars but preparations for a trial are underway.
New information is that a grand jury is to be empanelled in the state of New Jersey to hear the allegations against the dancehall deejay.
Last week, the New Jersey State Police reported that Flippa, whose real name is Andrew Davis, was the leader of an international drug trafficking and money laundering ring that operated between Jamaica, New Jersey and California.
The deejay was arrested in California in September and extradited to New Jersey earlier this month when he was charged.
After a two-and-a-half year probe, New Jersey investigators arrested eight others including members of Flippa’s family during a procedure dubbed ‘Operation Next Day Air’.
Flippa was offered bail in the sum of US$500,000.
