New York rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine might not have to worry about his legal nightmare as much as the public and media think. The hip-hop artist’s attorney believes his federal charges will eventually fade to black.
According to attorney Lance Lazzaro, the facts will ultimately set Tek free.
“I believe that the charges against him is an over-charge by the U.S. Attorney’s Office and that when the facts come out I am confident that the charges will be dismissed as it relates to Daniel Hernandez Tekashi 6ix9ine.” (XXL Mag)
According to reports, Tek is currently in general population at one of New York’s toughest prisons.
6ix9ine’s lawyer, Lance Lazzaro, tells us … Tekashi has been placed in gen pop at Brooklyn’s Metropolitan Detention Center as opposed to being held in a segregated part of the federal pen … due to his celeb status. That’s interesting because the MDC is notoriously brutal, with inmates that are “extremely dangerous, violent, or escape-prone,” according to the U.S. Justice Department. (TMZ)
Tek and his crew have a slew of federal charges pinned to them.
3:30 PM PT — According to the 17-page indictment, obtained by TMZ, Tekashi is facing 6 counts … the most serious of which is discharging a firearm while committing a crime. That count carries a possible life sentence, and a mandatory minimum of 25 years in prison. His ex-manager, Shottie, is facing the same 6 counts. Prosecutors say the acts of violence were intended to protect the gang’s drug biz, retaliate against rival gangs or promote Nine Trey’s rep on the streets. (TMZ)
The feds allegedly claim Tek and his affiliates’ crimes date back to 2013.
2:55 PM PT — Tekashi and his crew conspired to commit a slew of crimes, including drug deals, armed robberies and shootings … according to the federal indictment. The feds believe Tekashi himself pulled an armed robbery on April 3 along with his ex-manager, Shottie, and 2 other members of the Nine Trey Bloods. According to the docs, they robbed gang rivals at gunpoint. The indictment also mentions the April 21 shooting incident at Barclays Center in Brooklyn … and fingers Fuguan Lovick as the trigger man.
