Forty-year-old Camden County resident Jamal Herrin pleaded guilty Wednesday to a complaint charging him with conspiracy to possess and distribute the drug.

He could face a life term and a $10 million fine when he’s sentenced April 15.

U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration investigators learned in April 2012 that Herrin — who was on bail pending state murder charges — was interested in purchasing large quantities of cocaine. Herrin admitted that he negotiated the purchase of the 13 kilograms and amassed more than $325,000 to buy the cocaine.
