The Tekashi case is spiraling down. According to this newest plea deal, the “Gummo” rapper could walk away from all charges and serve no additional time on one condition. That being, he is a full participant and cooperates with the feds.
The 22-year-old is facing a minimum of 47 years and a maximum of life in prison after being convicted of charges for nine federal counts, including racketeering, conspiracy, firearms offenses, and narcotics trafficking.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office of the state of New York has agreed “not to prosecute the defendant for the crimes set forth in Counts One through Nine” along with “additional crimes that the defendant has told the government about.”
Going forward in the case, Tekashi will be sentenced when he reappears back in court on January 24, 2020. “Should the defendant successfully cooperate, the government agrees that it will file at the time of sentencing a motion…for a sentence below any mandatory minimum,” the plea deal reads.
6ix9ine was arrested in November 2018 following a five-year federal investigation into the criminal activities of the Nine Trey Bloods.
