(AllHipHop News) The brother of incarcerated Hip-Hop mogul James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond was sentenced to 12 years in prison yesterday (October 6th), for his role in a massive cocaine distribution operation that raked in more than $10,000,000 per year.
Jimmy Henchman's older brother Kesnar Rosemond, 50, was sentenced to lengthy prison sentence for cocaine distribution, wire fraud and identity theft related charges, according to the New York Post.
Kesnar Rosemond had already pleaded guilty to the charges in hopes of a reduced sentenced, but he was given the stiff sentence for the severity of the charges against him.
Prosecutors claim that Kesnar Rosemond used an unnamed New York auto dealership to steal loan applications to use the information to open fake accounts, using FedEx and other shipping companies, to send millions of dollars in drugs and cocaine across the country.
The tactic opened numerous innocent people up for investigation and interrogation and added to the complexity of the brother's scheme, according to prosecutors.
The feds claim Kesnar's younger brother James "Jimmy Henchman" Rosemond operated his management company CZAR Entertainment as a front for a Continuous Criminal Enterprise (CCE).
Jimmy Henchman is accused of using his business to send hundreds of kilos of cocaine in cases used for music equipment to various recording studios, and then using Fedex to send the proceeds to mailbox drops in vacuum sealed bags on the West coast.
Last week, prosecutors charged Jimmy Henchman with possession of machine guns and silencers, after the weapons were turned up during a raid of one of his properties, as part of an investigation that began in 2008.
Rosemond, who pleaded not guilty to all charges, is facing a life sentence if he is convicted on the drug and gun charges.
