NOPE! Tekashi 6ix9ine Will Not Be Home For Christmas, Sentenced To Two Years Behind Bars & Five Years Probation

​ ​ ​ ​

Tekashi 6ix9ine isn’t getting out of jail anytime soon. A judge just sentenced him to two years in prison and five years of probation. Deets inside…

Tekashi 6ix9ine (real name Daniel Hernandez) thought he would be released from prison before Christmas, but NOPE! The “FEFE” rapper will not be home for the holidays, despite reports claiming he would be released soon.

You'll recall, he was arrested and indicted on six federal charges. He was taken into federal custody after being charged with racketeering and firearms charges back in December 2018. ATF agents reportedly picked up the rapper in NYC along with his recently fired manager, Treway Shottie, and two other men.

 

According to Inner City Press reporter Matthew Russell Lee, Judge Paul Engelmayer sentenced the NYC rapper to two years in prison and five years probation. He already served 13 months of the sentence, which means he’ll be out by late 2020. Once he’s out, he’ll be supervised for five years, he’ll have to complete 300 hours of community service and he’ll have to pay a $35,000 fine.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

According to transcripts provided by Inner City Press, Judge Engelmayer told Tekashi:

"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. However, I cannot agree with your counsel that time served it appropriate. In my judgment, your conduct is too violent and selfish to make 13 months reasonable. You will not be going free today." He added, "For the better part of a year, you were part of a violent gang. So that there is no misunderstanding, here is a specific account of those act. First came Trippy Redd... You decided to shoot at a member of Trippy Redd's entourage. Jordan fired into the sprinter van, in the Times Square area. It is a matter of sheer luck that an innocent person or people was not wounded or killed."

According to TMZ, Tekashi received 1 point for his 2018 conviction for using a minor in a sexual performance (in a music video), and 2 more points for his involvement in the Nine Trey Bloods while on probation. Those 3 points put him in category 2 and the worst category is a 6.

The site reports:

Tekashi was originally facing a minimum of 47 years in prison before agreeing to assist prosecutors by ratting out his former gang members. As we reported, he pled guilty to 9 counts when he entered his plea back on January 23.

He copped to multiple counts of racketeering, conspiracy, firearms offenses and narcotics trafficking. According to federal docs ... Tekashi was involved with dealing heroin, fentanyl, ecstasy, amphetamines and weed.

The feds said the conspiracy included multiple acts of murder, robbery and extortion. Prosecutors also referred to a video TMZ first posted of Tekashi offering a $30k bounty for someone to shoot Chief Keef's cousin.
