Damir Lea, 22, aka “D-Money,” was sentenced to 11 years in state prison after pleading guilty to first-degree racketeering on June 20.

Lea admitted that he distributed narcotics for the drug ring and that he assaulted a man in the Camden County Jail because he believed the man was acting as a witness in the state’s investigation of the ring.

Attorney General Jeffrey S. Chiesa stated, “When gang members and drug dealers resort to violence against witnesses, we’re going to come down hard on them. This lengthy prison sentence sends a strong message that we will aggressively prosecute anyone who engages in witness intimidation.”

Lea and 13 other defendants were named in a Nov. 3, 2011 indictment charging them with first-degree racketeering and second-degree conspiracy. The indictment resulted from Operation City Wide, a nine-month investigation led by the Division of Criminal Justice.
