Daniel "Tekashi 6ix9ine" Hernandez faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 32 years in prison, according to the US Attorney in the rapper's accusation on Monday night, after Sunday night's arrest. The federal charges include accusations of extortion as a result of Hernandez 'involvement with the Nine Trey Bloods, as well as an unreported armed robbery in April, which the prosecution claims Hernández was present during. Hernandez faces a maximum penalty of life imprisonment.
Hernandez's attorney, Lance Lazzaro, pleaded for bail for his client under the condition that Hernandez surrenders his passport, pays more than $ 1 million for bail and is placed under house arrest. However, the judge denied bail, chose to keep Hernandez in custody and cited that the rapper may still be a danger to the community, even if the terms of bail are met. Hernandez's legal team plans to appeal that decision.
Four of Hernandez's associates, former manager Kifano "Shottie" Jordan, Faheem "Crippy" Walter, Jensel "Ish" Butler and Jamel "Mel Murda" Jones, were also arrested by the ATF on Sunday night and Monday by the morning and face many of the same charges as Hernandez.
According to the prosecution, the charges are the result of a federal investigation covering five years. Lazzaro said that Hernandez has only been affiliated with the associates and, by extension, his gang for a little more than a year, when he met them at a concert and later hired them as their manager and security detail. Hernandez publicly fired his team and the rest of his team at the end of last week, claiming in an Instagram video that they had been stealing him. Subsequently, he gave an interview with the Breakfast Club on Friday to expand his situation.
In addition to the charge of armed robbery, which took place in Times Square and the prosecution alleges that Hernandez was filming and that he was in possession of the stolen items when they registered at his home in September, Hernandez is also accused of possessing a AR -15, and participation in two additional shootings. One took place at the Barclays Center where he was performing and allegedly ordered another in a housing project in Brooklyn where a spectator was shot. The second comes with a conspiracy to commit murder charges. The robbery charge comes with a minimum sentence of 7 years, and the accumulated extortion charges, which stem from the litany of alleged activities with gang members, have a minimum of 25 years.
After his public separation from those associates, Hernandez was placed in federal protective custody on Saturday, before his arrest on Sunday. According to the prosecutors in his appearance, there were wiretaps involved in the federal investigation and after Hernandez 'public statements about his administration team, they discovered credible threats against his life and the other subjects of the investigation planned to "rape" Hernández in retaliation. . Hernandez rejected the protection of the police and was arrested the next day.
The charges against Hernandez are significant, and her arrest is a violation of probation established last month in her sentencing hearing for her ongoing case of the use of a minor in a sexual act. The judge in that case sentenced him to a four-year probationary period, under which two of the conditions were that he was not arrested for the period of that trial period, and refrain from associating with any known gang. In addition to his arrest, the prosecution claims that hours after the end of his sentence, Hernandez returned with his team affiliated with Blood, which led to a shooting outside the restaurant in New York, Philipe Chow, between his associates and a member of the team security of your seal boss. . The violation of his probation could also lead to four years in prison.
