New Jersey man faces life in prison for peddling dangerous amount of hard drugs
A Manchester Township resident is looking at a sentence of up to life in prison after being charged with running a drug trafficking operation of some pretty hard narcotics.

Attorney Sellinger said that for drug trafficking, Moss faces a minimum of 10 years in prison with the max being life behind bars and a fine of up to $ 10 million, and he would face up to 10 years in prison for the gun possession charge and have to pay a fine here of up to $250,000.
In addition to that, Moss could get five years in prison at a minimum and up to life in prison along with a fine of up to $250,000 for possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.
Moss is scheduled to be sentenced in March of 2023.
