Budd announced the Edward McLamb, age 35, Kenneth Bartlett, age 31, Willy Williams, age 27, Marvin Wise, age 29, Jon James, age 27, and Robert Morreira, age 29, each of Queens, N.Y., decided to plead guilty to the charge of conspiracy to possess and distribute cocaine following 4 days of trial before U.S. District Judge Walter Jay Skinner.

 Willy Williams - 262 months
 Kenneth Bartlett- 262 MONTHS Judge Skinner scheduled sentencing for Feb. 10, 1992 at 2 p.m.
 During its opening statement in the trial, the government informed the jury that the evidence would establish that McLamb was the primary supplier of cocaine to the Darryl Whiting organization ("The New York Boys") for approximately 3-1/2 years, and that he supplied between 2 and 5 kilograms each week which was brought to Boston by a team of female couriers. The government also represented that the evidence would prove that defendants Wise and James were among Darryl Whiting's top "lieutenants" who supervised the distribution of cocaine and "crack" at the Orchard Park Housing Project, and that defendants Bartlett, Williams and Morreira served as enforcers and armed security personnel whose job it was to protect the stash and profits of "The New York Boys" lucrative drug distribution network in Roxbury.

A federal grand jury indicted a total of 56 people, in 4 separate indictments, between December, 1990 and April, 1991. These indictments followed a lengthy undercover investigation by the Boston Federal Task Force, a coalition of federal, state and local law enforcement officials, which came into existence in October, 1989.
 Of the defendants sentenced thus far, Darryk Whiting received a mandatory life sentence, and 4 of his co-defendants have received non-parolable prison terms of 16 years, 21 years, 22 years and 30 years respectively.
