Could Tekashi 6ix9ine Be Getting Out Of Jail Sooner Than Expected?
Tekashi 6ix9ine was facing up to 47 years in jail after being arrested back at the end of 2018, however New York attorney Moe Gangat says that he may not continue the sentence years terms.
In a video clip posted on his Instagram account, Gangat suggested that 6ix9ine could actually be released on Wednesday 18th December 2019, which shocked his fans on social media.
Speaking in the video, Gangat says “Look for Tekashi to get out this Wednesday, December 18 with a sentence of time served. When it’s all said and done, he’s likely to have served just under one year in federal prison.”
He went on to say, “The way federal sentencing works is the government tells the judge what sentence the person should get. Here, the government hasn’t asked for any sentence. When the government doesn’t ask for a sentence, what they’re saying is time served, no sentence.”
“On the one side is the government and they’re there to prosecute crimes. On the other side is the defense attorney who’s there to defend the accused of crimes. The judge is supposed to act as a neutral arbitrator to figure out who has the better argument, then make a decision, Gangat says.”
He adds, “In this case, the government is not asking for a sentence. The probation department, also part of the government, is recommending time served. The defence attorneys are also recommending time served. So it would take something really extreme, really something unprecedented to give anything other than time served.”
6ix9ine has been cooperating with the federal government since his November 2018 arrest.
As a result, United States Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman officially recommended his sentence be significantly reduced earlier this month, explaining he was crucial to the case.
“[Daniel] Hernandez provided the Government with critical insight into the structure and organization of Nine Trey, identified the gang’s key players, and described acts of violence that he personally witnessed or that he heard about from other Nine Trey members,” Berman wrote. “Hernandez testified in the face of threats of safety to him and his family.”
Tekashi 6ix9ine sentencing date is set for Wednesday 18th December 2019, more update will come in that aspect.
