By Tiffany Williams –
Monday, Phillip Williams, 38, of Brighton, Massachusetts pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute cocaine.
Williams was charged with 23 others in June 2020 as part of Operation Snowfall, which ultimately resulted in the prosecution of two different drug trafficking conspiracies during the overall period of November 2018 through June 2020.
In November 2018, law enforcement investigated a DTO (Drug Trafficking Organization) in which Williams was a distributor. The DTO was composed of Boston-based street gang members and associates in the Commonwealth Development in Brighton, formerly known as Fidelis Way, a multi-apartment public housing development.
The DTO assumed control over multiple apartments, which they used to store, cook, package, and sell drugs, most of which consisted of cocaine or cocaine base, which the DTO supplied to customers, wholesalers, and distributors.
Williams is estimated to have distributed between approximately 100 and 200 grams of cocaine base during the course of his participation in the Fidelis Way DTO.
