Big news regarding 6ix9ine’s legal case.
Embattled Brooklyn rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine‘s case took yet another turn in what has become a winding legal road as details have begun to emerge regarding the artist’s apparent cooperation with law enforcement. While not every detail is clear, it appears that Tekashi will be receiving a reduced sentence (of what duration, we’re still unsure) in addition to being offered witness protection as the rapper has cooperated with federal authorities and agreed to testify in court.
While the mandatory minimum sentencing for the crimes against 6ix9ine is 47 years, it appears that the rapper will be out well before then if he continues talking. The plea deal states in part that, “should the defendant successfully cooperate, the government agrees that it will file at the time of sentencing a motion … for a sentence below any mandatory minimum.”, meaning while the duration of Tekashi’s federal stay will ultimately be decided by a judge, things are looking as if he’ll catch a significant break in sentencing.
