A biker gang leader from Lawrenceville admitted today that he is a cocaine dealer in a case that will send him to federal prison for at least 15 years.
Raymond Kober, 32, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to deal coke and possession of a gun during a July 2014 drug deal at his house.
Kober, leader of the enforcement arm of The Law biker gang, was the target of a six-month wiretap investigation by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration focusing on his drug sales with five associates in the gang.
Agents said Kober ran a group within the club called D-12, which dealt drugs and committed other crimes on behalf of the larger membership.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Jonathan Ortiz said Kober was a "large-scale" coke trafficker. The DEA used one of his customers to set him up with controlled money deliveries for cocaine deals, leading to a wiretap of the gang's phones.
During one deal on July 25, 2014, Mr. Ortiz said, Kober conducted a drug deal at his house, during which he had a gun on his dining room table. That charge constitutes one of the counts against him and carries a minimum five-year sentence. The conspiracy charge carries a minimum 10-year term.
Asked by U.S. District Judge Joy Flowers Conti if he agreed with the prosecution's account of his drug-dealing, Kober said, "Yes ma'am."
He was the fourth member of the drug ring to plead.
