Tekashi 6ix9ine Pleads Guilty To Nine Counts In Federal Crimes Case
The case includes charges of racketeering, conspiracy, multiple firearms offenses, narcotics trafficking, and more. As terms of plea deal, Tekashi will also admit to aiding and abetting in the attempted Chief Keef shooting in June 2018.
As previously reported, 6ix9ine was arrested in New York City in Nov. 2018 for racketeering and other federal charges. The rapper’s former manager Shottie – born Kifano Jordan – and their associates Jensel "Ish" Butler, Walter, Fuguan "Fu Banga" Lovick, and Jamel "Mel Murda"Jones, were also arrested on the same charges.
According to an indictment reviewed by Pitchfork, Tekashi, born Daniel Hernandez, allegedly partook in murder, robbery, assault, and drug distribution under "the operation and management of" the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods. 6ix9ine originally pled not guilty in 2018 with an expected trial date of Sept. 4.
Two of the charges in Tekashi's case have maximum penalties of life in prison. He should receive sentencing on Jan. 24, 2020.
