Davey pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute meth, possession with intent to distribute meth, and possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug crime. He’s been sentenced to 16 years and eight months behind bars, followed by five years of supervised release.

Fitzpatrick entered a guilty plea to conspiracy to distribute meth. No sentencing date has been set for him.
