“American Idol” Contestant Pleads Guilty to Drug Ring Charges

Former “American Idol” contestant Antonella Barba has reportedly pleaded guilty to charges stemming from her role in an opioid drug ring in Virginia.

Barba had been accused of conspiring to distribute heroin, fentanyl and cocaine, according to an unsealed federal indictment from February. She is now facing a mandatory minimum of 10 years in prison, a fine of $10 million, forfeiture of assets and at least five years of supervised release.

Barba, 32, was reportedly directed by Justin Michael Isaac to deliver about 830 grams of fentanyl, almost two pounds, to an unnamed conspirator in Norfolk, Virginia, according to federal prosecutors. She was voted off of the sixth season of “American Idol” before the top 12 were announced. She has also appeared on “Fear Factor.”
