Daniel Hernandez, the New York rap artist known as Tekashi 6ix9ine, faced sentencing today in Manhattan. 6ix9ine was dealing with potential prison time for violating the terms of a plea contract coming from his 2015 arrest for the use of a kid in a sexual efficiency. As Pitchfork reports, despite the D.A.’s suggestion that he offer 3 years and register as a sex culprit, Judge Felicia A. Mennin sentenced the rap artist to four years’ probation as well as 1,000 hours community service.
In the first 2015 instance, 6ix9ine pled guilty to publishing videos of himself carrying out sex-related acts with a 13-year-old woman. He was 18 at the time the footage was taped. The guilty appeal obtained him probation under rigorous problems: He needed to get his GED, do social work, and not break the law once more prior to his sentencing. Sentencing was originally set up for 2017 yet was pushed back numerous times because of 6ix9ine not getting his GED. In the interim, he’s been apprehended twice, initially for presumably assaulting a law enforcement agent in Bed-Stuy, after that on a superior warrant for choking a 16-year-old in Houston.
As component of the terms of the sentence, 6ix9ine is forbidden from publishing or reposting sexually explicit or fierce pictures of women or children. He will certainly not have to sign up as a sex wrongdoer.
During 6ix9ine’s celebration after the hearing, his bodyguard was reportedly fired. According to police sources speaking with TMZ, 6ix9ine was at a dining establishment in Midtown Manhattan conference with an exec from 10k Projects Records. When the officer’s bodyguard averted 6ix9ne’s entourage, claiming only the rap artist might get in the dining establishment without his protection, his individuals protested and also an argument broke out. During the dispute, a third party reportedly strolled up and also fired 4 shots, striking the rapper’s bodyguard in the belly. The bodyguard was moved to the healthcare facility.
Earlier this year 6ix9ine was involved in a scuffle in Brooklyn that landed him in the medical facility. Around the exact same time he was investigated for prospective links to a shooting aimed at Chief Keef in New York City.
