GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - A 33-year-old man accused of trading a Gulfport nightclub for 12 kilos of cocaine has notified U.S. District Court of his intent to plead guilty.
The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1dkEmxS ) Victor Darnell Williams is scheduled for a change-of-plea hearing Wednesday.
The trade value of 12 kilos of cocaine was $28,000 a kilo, or $336,000.
Williams also reportedly agreed to pay a $5,000 transportation fee for the cocaine and traded a 1973 Buick Century for half a kilo of cocaine before his arrest Aug. 30.
The federal government has seized the building, its contents and other items which have been forfeited in a related civil lawsuit filed by the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
Williams faces 10 years to life in prison.
