It seems like the prosecutors are working to keep Tekashi 6ix9ine as clean as possible in the upcoming gang trial. 

As reported by Page Six, the prosecutors, in this case, do not want the jurors to hear anything about the rapper’s conviction for posting child porn. This request was put in a filing addressed to Paul Engelmeyer, the Manhattan federal court judge. 

The filing has asked the following, “The government respectfully requests that defense counsel be precluded from cross-examining CW-2 regarding: (1) an October 21, 2015 conviction in New York County Supreme Court of Use of a Child Less than 17 Years of Age in a Sexual performance,” the letter reads, referring to the rapper as “CW-2.” It goes on to say, 

”In or about February 2015, CW-2 was with two other individuals in an apartment, when an underage girl arrived. The girl performed sex acts on the two other individuals. The acts were filmed while CW-2 could be seen grabbing the girl, fondling her breasts and buttocks. The videos were subsequently uploaded to social media.” Tekashi was 18 years old during the time of the indictment while the young girl was 13. 

The prosecution is currently waiting on Judge Engelmeyer’s decision.
