Tekashi 6ix9ine Sentence: The day has finally come, which everyone has been waiting for, with bated breath. Rapper, Tekashi 6ix9ine has finally been handed his sentence, for two years in prison. He is expected to be out in 2020, having in mind, time served.
In making the decision, Judge Paul Engelmayer said that Tekashi 6ix9ine, born Daniel Hernandez, was a “central figure in a vicious and brutal gang.” Engelmayer said he caused mayhem around the city and used the gang as his “personal hit squad.”
However, Engelmayer balanced those crimes with the rapper’s extensive cooperation with government investigators. This is because prosecutors had requested a reduced sentence because of his “extraordinary” and “substantial” cooperation.
His attorney, Lance Lazzaro had asked the court to sentence him to time served,because of the risk he had undertaken, in cooperating with the government. He had also broken the street code, by snitching on the Nine Trey Gang.
In court, Hernandez spoke of his remorse and how he failed the young fans who look up to him. He stressed that he’d change his ways when he’s out of prison. He also directly apologized to a woman who told the court that she was shot in the foot in a July 2018 shooting in Brooklyn.
