6ix9ine habeen handed a 2 year sentence with 5 years supervised released
6ix9ine has been sentenced to 2 years imprisonment. After spending the past year behind bars, the judge decided that 6ix9ine will not be released today. According to Inner City Press’ Matthew Russell Lee, a judge has sentenced Tekashi to two years in prison and five years of supervised release.
According to Lee, the judge also sentenced 6ix9ine to 300 hours of community service.
The federal prosecutors requested that the judge consider 6ix9ine role in helping the government convict his Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods associates when deciding what sentence he should get. In a letter to the judge, federal prosecutors said 6ix9ine provided “substantial assistance” with the federal investigations into Nine Trey Members.
Prosecutors said 6ix9ine should be given a lenient sentence in light of “18 U.S.C. § 3553(e) and the factors set forth in Section 5K1.1(a)(1)–(5) of the Guidelines.” These statutes serve as guidelines that allow a judge to sentence someone to less than the mandatory minimum based on how much assistance they give to the government.
In addition, 6ix9ine himself wrote the judge a letter asking for leniency.
6ix9ine, who had been facing a mandatory minimum of 47 years in prison when he was first indicted last year, began giving federal authorities information about the criminal activity of Nine Trey members from Nov. 20, 2018, just two days after he was originally arrested. He entered a guilty plea in court on Jan. 23, 2019.
