Tekashi who appeared in court today was left feeling sad from the get go after the judge stated that “you will NOT be going free today, 13 months in custody is not enough”, Judge Engelmayer then stated ” I cannot agree with your counsel that time served is appropriate. In my judgment, your conduct is too violent and selfish to make 13 months reasonable”.
See timeline of the judge’s remarks in the court below!
Judge Engelmayer: Mr. Hernandez, I’ve given it a lot of close thought, including your cooperation. The following are my thoughts, & this is going to take a little while. You are in custody for 13 months. I agree you deserve a great deal of credit for cooperation.
Judge Engelmayer: In that incident in Smurf Village, a woman was shot in the foot
Judge Engelmayer: Next was Chief Keef, He was in New York, you were in LA. You offered $20,000 to shoot at Chief Keef outside W Hotel. You later gave $10,000. Then you were in LA. A rival was live streaming in Smurf Village. Jordan offered to shoot, you said OK.
Judge Engelmayer: Your first crime, use of a child in a sexual performance, you said the same thing, that older acquaintances were having sexual intercourse with the underage girl. That excuse may have worked once, but it doesn’t work twice
On a lighter note…
Judge Engelmayer: You met with the government 26 times, reviewing social media messages and decoding them. Your cooperation enabled the government to take down a violent gang, beyond the six including you named in the initial indictment.
Judge Engelmayer: Your cooperation was courageous. The danger to you is multiplied by your music career, which I understand you intend to continue. The fact that you are unusually recognizable does not help you.
After saying all of that Judge Engelmayer stated that Tekashi deserves and will receive less than 47 years as a result of his cooperation with the police.
In handing down the sentencing, the judge stated that Tekashi will get 24 months in prison, with five years of supervised release. 6ix9ine who has already served 13 months in prison is expected to serve 11 more months before his release.
In closing, Judge Engelmayer: I impose 300 hours of community service when you get out, and a fine of $35,000. Mr Hernandez, the worst part is over. There is a great deal to be admired about you. You’re learned a hard lesson here. I wish you very very well. We are adjourned.
He’s expected to be released in November 2020. It’s unclear if he will be eligible parole which will give him an option for early release.
Earlier 6ix9ine’s defense team asks for the rapper to be sentenced to time served and 3 years supervised release. The optimistic defense team stated that he could be released in a matter of hours.
Earlier Tekashi 6ix9ine Pleaded Guilty to 9 Federal charges in State Supreme Court in Manhattan. 22-year-old Daniel Hernandez aka Tekashi 6ix9ine admitted in court to being a part of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods from out of New York.
The flashy rapper said a lot to the judge including “i paid a person to shoot at a rival”, he then went on to state that it was to scare them. “I did this to maintain or increase my own standing in Nine Trey”, also “shooting at people, robbing people and, at times, drug trafficking,” Tekashi told all that he could when he last took the stand in an effort to get as less time as possible in prison.
