Demarko Renalle Ware, of Polk County, pleaded guilty on Monday in U.S. District Court in Rome. Ware could face a sentence of 20 years to life in prison and be ordered to pay an $8 million fine.
He is scheduled to be sentenced on Dec. 17.
According to a May indictment, Ware was a part of a ring of Polk County drug dealers who bought large amounts of meth and sold smaller quantities from a home on Jones Washington Road in Aragon.
He was one of seven men arrested as part of an investigation by the Polk County Police Department, Georgia Bureau of Investigation, Cedartown Police Department and the Rome-Floyd Metro Task Force. All seven were charged with knowingly conspiring to sell meth.
Ware was also accused to aiding and abetting another man who was arrested as part of the same investigation.
Ware is the second man in a week to plead guilty as part of the same drug case. Last week Tommy Morgan, 24, of Polk County, pleaded guilty to buying and selling 500 grams of meth and to selling a firearm to an undercover officer.
Morgan could receive 10 years to life in prison and be ordered to pay a $4 million fine.
