CORONAVIRUS RELEASES 6IX9INE FROM PRISON
Coronavirus Releases 6ix9ine Early From Prison: Coronavirus has assisted in the early release of American rapper, 6ix9ine from prison. After taking careful consideration of the Coronavirus pandemic and health concerns, a Manhattan judge granted Tekashi a compassionate release from prison on the 2nd of April, 2020.
Currently doing a 24-month sentence on racketeering, 6ix9ine will now serve his remaining four months in home confinement. He’s been in custody since November 2018.
During his home incarceration, Tekashi will be monitored by GPS at the location of his probation officer’s choice. He will need pre-approval from the probation department to leave home, which is strictly on for necessary medical treatment and to meet his lawyer, Dawn Florio.
After Tekashi recently sought medical attention for bronchitis, sinusitis, and asthma, his legal team put a request in for an early release but was denied. The decision was due to the lack of legal authority by the state court and be the high-profile rapper was in custody by the U.S. Marshals at a private detention center in New York.
Last December, 6ix9ine was sentenced to two years on racketeering charges that involved acts of assaults, shootings, murder, and drug trafficking. Initially facing 47 years, his sentence was reduced to two years following his cooperation with the prosecution, which leads to the convictions of members of his former gang, Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods. 6ix was also granted time-served based on the 11 months already completed at the time of sentencing.
