New York rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine‘s days behind bars might be over with in less than 72 hours. Fresh reports claim the hip-hop entertainer is set to taste freedom in the coming days.
According to reports, there’s a belief 6ix9ine will not have to deal with hard time when he learns his fate in a federal racketeering case.
However, that’s not the case, as the U.S. Federal Government, probation department and the defense attorney have officially come to terms to give 6ix9ine time served. 6ix9ine is set to be released from jail in less than 72 hours, and will appear in court to be sentenced to one-year and a day. Under FEDs sentencing guidelines, the mandatory minimum of 47 years in prison will be cut to time served. It’s expected that he’ll immediately leave the court, with security, after Federal Judge Paul Engelmayer goes through with the final call. (OnSmash)
However, other reports claim a new filing shows 6ix9ine could still land a massive 37 years in prison.
One of the reasons in the filing, for such a long sentence, is the fact Tekashi was on probation for a sexual misconduct charge while still running with the Nine Trey Bloods. Tekashi was charged with racketeering for his connection to the gang. “The defendant’s mandatory minimum term of incarceration would be 37 years’ imprisonment,” the document states. (The Blast)
Earlier in the week, footage surfaced of an attorney explaining why 6ix9ine could possibly get out of prison with time served.
This week, a letter emerged from 6ix9ine pleading with his judge to consider a light sentence.
