Florida rapper XXXTentacion is ‘this’ close to almost tasting freedom. The hip-hop artist is reportedly heading out of jail on house arrest terms days after getting placed behind bars.
Social media personality Akademiks has suggested XXX is awaiting a return home.
Earlier in the week, X made headlines for receiving multiple felony charges related to witness tampering.
According to prosecuting documents … prosecutors believe the alleged witness tampering went down in October 2016 … when XXX was initially arrested for domestic violence. He’s accused of beating his then-pregnant ex-girlfriend. Law enforcement sources tell us XXX made multiple phone calls while behind bars, which were recorded … as all prisoner calls are. We’re told evidence from those phone calls led to the new charges. (TMZ)
During last Friday’s court appearance, a judge decided to put X in jail for violating his bail bond.
During Friday’s hearing in Miami-Dade County, Judge Teresa Mary Pooler determined that Onfroy had violated his bond from his initial arrest. As such, the musician was taken directly to jail where he’s likely to remain until his next trial date. (New York Daily News)
The hip-hop artist reportedly faces stacks of years in jail if he’s convicted.
At today’s hearing, the judge ruled the rapper had violated his bond from his initial arrest. With the added charges — witness tampering is a first-degree felony in the state of Florida — the 19-year-old rapper could potentially face decades in prison. (SPIN)
