Federal prosecutors have released photos of inked up rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine that they claim prove he is a risky gangbanger and should remain in prison until trial. Sentencing in the case dragged on for years until, last month, a NY judge gave Hernandez four years of probation and required him to complete community service, refrain from gang affiliation, and avoid future arrests.
Tekashi 6ix9ine isn't getting any special treatment in prison following his arrest over the weekend.
Aside from the rapper, his ex-manager, Kifano Jordan, aka Shotti has been charged. The details of the arrest were not disclosed and are expected to be revealed during the defendants' arraignment later today. The prosecution also says that Nine Trey carried out violent attacks on members of rival gangs - which sometimes led to innocent bystanders being shot or killed.
The group 'enriched themselves by committing robberies and selling drugs, such as heroin, fentanyl, furanly fentanyl, MDMA, dibutylone, and marijuana'. Two of the charges Hernandez faces have the greatest punishment of life in prison.
US Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman said the gang has been involved in multiple acts of violence and has wrecked havoc on New York City.
Prosecutors on Tuesday released more than a dozen images in their case against Brooklyn-born rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine, who was arrested on racketeering and firearm charges.
Taking to Instagram, American Hip Hop personality DJ Akademiks shared the leaked Tekashi 6ix9ine arrest documents and wrote, "They tryna give #tekashi69 and Co defendants Life in Prison or at least 20 years in Prison".
Tekashi and his associates are in federal custody on the charges and faces a possible life sentence, with a mandatory twenty-five years minimum in jail, on the discharging a firearm alone if convicted. A law enforcement source tells E!
