KC Man Pleads Guilty to $1 Million Drug-Trafficing Conspiracy, Faces at least 15 Years in Prison

 

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Tammy Dickinson, United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, announced that a Kansas City, Mo., man pleaded guilty in federal court today to his role in a drug-trafficking conspiracy that totaled more than $1 million over the past year and to illegally possessing a firearm.

Corbin J. Bosiljevac, 36, of Kansas City, pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Dean Whipple to his role in a conspiracy to distribute more than five kilograms of cocaine and to possessing a firearm in furtherance of a drug-trafficking offense.

According to today’s plea agreement, police detectives stopped one of Bosiljevac’s drug-trafficking customers as he was leaving Bosiljevac’s residence and found drugs in the vehicle. Officers executed a search warrant at Bosiljevac’s residence and found marijuana, cocaine, ecstasy, and hundreds of pills of various prescription drugs. Officers also found a Kel-Tec 9mm handgun and $1,863 in Bosiljevac’s residence.

Bosiljevac admitted that he sold $20,000 worth of drugs each week. He had separate sources to supply the cocaine and the pills, he told officers. He stated that he bought cocaine for re-sale on a weekly basis, getting an average of four ounces per week (although he admitted getting 16 ounces on the last transaction).

Under federal statutes, Bosiljevac is subject to a mandatory minimum sentence of 15 years in federal prison without parole, up to a sentence of life in federal prison without parole, plus a fine up to $4,250,000. A sentencing hearing will be scheduled after the completion of a presentence investigation by the United States Probation Office.

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Charles E. Ambrose, Jr. It was investigated by the Kansas City, Mo., Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration.
