In exchange for leniency, Galli plead guilty on Monday in the U.S. District Court in Trenton to possession of drugs and possession of a firearm during a drug crime, which were discovered during a search of his and another home by detectives from the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office.
Nearly 1 pound of drugs and a loaded 9mm FEG Model PGK-9HP gun with 12 rounds were seized during the raids in September, said U.S. Attorney Craig Carpenito. He was arrested with Amanda Humphreys, 24, of Seaside Heights and Jason Vella, 37 of Berkeley Township.
Galli was already on supervised release after a 30-month stint for a 2016 conviction for conspiring to distribute more than a pound of drugs.
Carpenito also said that for the gun conviction, U.S. Judge Anne E. Thompson will add a mandatory five years to his sentence at a hearing scheduled for July 7 in Trenton.
There are also significant fines in Galli’s near future.
Many agencies were involved in this case including the FBI’s Organized Crime Task Force, the Ocean County Prosecutor’s, Senior Counsel V. Grady O’Malley of the Organized Crime and Gang Unit in Newark.
