Many inmates are beginning to be released from prison to avoid the spread of the Coronavirus in the facilities. Tekashi 6ix9ine is lucky enough to be one of the inmates, in which he’ll serve the rest of his sentencing at home.
On April 2, the young rapper was permitted by the judge to finish the next four months of his sentence at home because he is sensitive to the pandemic. His lawyer Lance Lazzaro brought to the judge’s attention that 6ix9ine has an asthma condition that is crucial during this time of COVID-19. With the help of his attorneys, he was able to get the process cleared.
According to XXL, the letter from the judge stated that Tekashi wouldn’t have been expected to serve the last four months of his sentence if they knew that there was going to be pandemic.
Six9ine was convicted Dec. 2019 with a lighter verdict for cooperating with officials against members of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods. He was facing sentencing of attempted murder, drug trafficking, and other gang activity.
Although this doesn’t mean that he’s completely out of jail, he will be home and monitored by an ankle device. He will also be able to use technology freely, meaning he can begin creating music again and use social media. This might mean that we’ll hear from the rapper soon, or even get new music.
