New York rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine might be enjoying the rest of his prison sentence from home. New reports claim the hip-hop artist is set to be released this week as a result of the coronavirus epidemic.
On Wednesday, reports emerged about 6ix9ine’s possible legal victory. Buzz has generated revealing he could get out from behind bars if a judge gives him the green light.
In a document shared by respected court journalist Matthew Russell Lee, who has covered all the trial dates of Tekashi 6ix9ine’s hearing, the rappers legal team claim the government have until 5pm to deny his release. The document from United States District Judge Engelmayer says that the court had received a request from Daniel Hernandez aka 6ix9ine for compassionate relief and that that had been denied. However, the document goes on to say, ‘…his application to convert the balance of his term of imprisonment to home confinement is now administratively proper’. (Capital Xtra)
The massive news has already generated a ton of social media reactions. People have lit up their Twitter pages to share mixed thoughts on 6ix9ine getting out of prison.
Wait, There’s More
In March 2020, Tekashi’s legal team requested he get released from prison. The request came after coronavirus started to spread across the nation at a rapid pace.
6ix9ine’s attorney, Lance Lazzaro, wrote a letter to the judge Sunday night citing serious concerns for Tekashi’s wellbeing behind bars. Lazzaro says Tekashi suffers from asthma — making catching coronavirus that much more serious — and he wants him out ASAP. In the letter — obtained by TMZ — Lazzaro also reveals Tekashi was diagnosed with bronchitis and sinusitis late last year and was hospitalized for treatment. (TMZ)
Before You Go
According to reports, 6ix9ine will officially become a free man in early August. The jailed rap artist’s legal representative recently said his good behavior ultimately contributed to the early release rollout.
Rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine is scheduled to get out of federal prison in August after behaving like a “model prisoner” behind bars, a report said Monday. The 23-year-old rapper-turned-government-witness — who is serving out his time in an unspecified private jail for safety reasons — has a release date of Aug. 2, according to the Bureau of Prisons Inmate Locator. One of his attorneys, Dawn Florio, told Complex: “The reason why he’s getting released early is because he’s the perfect model prisoner.” (Page Six)
