The judge presiding over Tekashi 6ix9ine’s case has rejected an appeal to have the rapper’s prison sentence transferred to house arrest.
Judge Paul Engelmayer believes that the prison time is “necessary in this case…to reflect the seriousness of his crimes.” His lawyers argued he needs to be let out of federal prison for his safety. They pointed out that he snitched against his former gang associates and is currently housed in a facility with many Bloods. Tekashi’s sentence ends in November, though he could be out as early as July due to the 85 Percent Rule. (TMZ)
Tekashi’s girlfriend, Jade, posted on Instagram supporting her man and all he’s been through. Meanwhile, Meek Mill took her Instagram post as a chance to take a shot, calling his outfit “that witness protection drip.”
- Free Tekashi!
- He made his bed, now it’s time to lie in it.
- He only has to serve a few more months — if he can survive that long.
