Judge Denies Tekashi 6ix9ine’s Request to be Released Early to Avoid COVID-19

Tekashi 6ix9ine tried to pull a fast one to get out of jail early as the coronavirus continues to spread through the prison system, but the judge declined his request. But it’s not all bad.

The disgraced rapper claims his pre-existing health conditions makes him vulnerable to contract to the virus, but the judge just doesn’t have the jurisdiction to get him out. According to Tekashi’s attorney, Lance Lazzaro, he claims the judge strongly recommended that he submitted his request to the Bureau of Prisons.

Tekashi 6ix9ine is expected to be released in August, but just like Bill Cosby, he wants to complete his sentence from home because he has asthma, and is afraid of testing positive and having complications from the coronavirus.

Do you think the COVID-19 pandemic will be 6ix9ine’s get out of jail free card?

Bill Cosby Reportedly Files Motion to Get Released From Prison Amid COVID-19 Pandemic

Bill Cosby is the latest high-profile inmate who wants to be released from prison amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Its already been confirmed that inmates and correction officers in several facilities tested positive for the virus. Even Harvey Weinstein reportedly tested positive, so the disgraced comedian is concerned and wants to serve the rest of his sentence on house arrest.

The 82-year-old’s legal team is preparing to file a motion to get him released from SCI Phoenix in Montgomery County. A representative for Cosby told Page Six, “We believe it is only a matter of time before Mr. Cosby’s prison likely falls victim to the virus, such a confined space is the perfect place for a virus to spread rapidly, it is hazardous to the prison staff and vulnerable inmates. Bill Cosby is no detriment or danger to the community. He can’t go anywhere, he is elderly, he is blind. He can stay under house arrest with an ankle bracelet, as he did before, with his wife taking care of him. Let him do his time at home.”

Bill Cosby’s rep, Andrew Wyatt, claims there are several prison officers at the Pennsylvania detention center that tested positive for COVID-19, but they didn’t confirm or deny the claims when the outlet reached out.

Wyatt added, “We are now preparing a motion to ask the court and the state to release Mr. Cosby from prison and place him under house arrest for the duration of his sentence.

“We are not doing this because he is Bill Cosby, our concern is that he is 82, he is blind and has close contact with workers who take him to his medical appointments every day in a wheelchair, they take him for his meals and clean his cell. If they get infected, they could pass it on to him.”

Tekashi 6ix9ine recently asked to be released early due to concerns about the coronavirus spreading through the prison system and his alleged pre-existing conditions. Weinstein is reportedly being isolated after testing positive. This all comes after President Trump acknowledged the vulnerability of ill and elderly inmates.

Do you think Cosby should be released on house arrest to complete the rest of his 10-year sentence in his 9,000-square-foot mansion in Elkins Park, Pa, alongside his wife?

Tekashi 6ix9ine Reportedly Wants Early Release Due to Coronavirus Scare

Coronavirus … Sh*t is real! So real that Tekashi 6ix9ine wants out of prison early as the virus poses as a threat in the prison system.

TMZ reports that the disgraced rapper’s lawyer, Lance Lazzaro, wrote a letter to the judge requesting that his client gets released early for his own health.

Lazzaro claims that the DUMMY BOY rapper has the following pre-existing conditions: Asthma, sinusitis (sinus infection), and he was diagnosed with bronchitis in 2019.

Tekashi’s attorney also writes that prison authorities wouldn’t let him visit a doctor after complaining about shortness of breath.

The request comes on the same day that Harvey Weinstein was isolated after allegedly being diagnosed with the virus.

Tekashi 6ix9ine Has A Multi-Million Dollar Lawsuit On His Head Right Now

Tekashi 6ix9ine sued

New York rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine is going to need to lawyer up. New reports claim the hip-hop artist has a $2.25 million lawsuit heading his way from clothing brand Fashion Nova.

Big Facts

According to reports, Fashion Nova believes Tek didn’t properly promote a short-lived business partnership. To make matters worse, he received a $225,000 advance in October 2018.

The docs claim just 2 weeks after Tekashi got the wire, he was locked up … making him unable to perform his duties for the company. What’s more … they say Tekashi’s testimony during the trial totally torpedoed his ability to be a good brand ambassador for FN. FN claims Tekashi was underhanded … he and his people concealed the entire criminal prosecution from them. In other words, what FN seems to be saying is that they had no idea Tekashi was a criminal. FN says Tekashi promised to return the $225k, but never did … and now they’re suing for $2.25 million. (TMZ)

High-Key Details

According to reports, 6ix9ine will become a free man in early August. The jailed rap artist’s legal representative recently said his good behavior ultimately contributed to the early release rollout.

Rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine is scheduled to get out of federal prison in August after behaving like a “model prisoner” behind bars, a report said Monday. The 23-year-old rapper-turned-government-witness — who is serving out his time in an unspecified private jail for safety reasons — has a release date of Aug. 2, according to the Bureau of Prisons Inmate Locator. One of his attorneys, Dawn Florio, told Complex: “The reason why he’s getting released early is because he’s the perfect model prisoner.” (Page Six)

Wait, There’s More

Despite landing behind bars on federal charges, 6ix9ine ultimately cooperated with prosecutors. His decision to help the feds eventually landed him a reduced prison sentence.

Hernandez was facing 37 years to life on federal racketeering charges, but his sentence was reduced to two years in prison plus five years of supervised probation in December 2019 in a dramatic trial that included the interruption of Hernandez’s alleged father, whom he claimed he hadn’t seen since the third grade. The reduced sentence came as a result of his cooperation with the U.S. Attorney’s Office in a case against the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods. (Rolling Stone)

Before You Go

The rap star has remained behind bars since November 2018. Tek’s federal charges included drug racketeering.

6ix9ine was arrested in November 2018 on federal racketeering and firearms charges. In February of 2019, he pled guilty to nine counts in the federal case—including charges of racketeering conspiracy, multiple firearms offenses, and narcotics trafficking. The rapper began cooperating with prosecutors almost immediately after his arrest, subsequently testifying against alleged Nine Trey Gangsta Blood members Aljermiah “Nuke” Mack and Anthony “Harv” Ellison. Mack was eventually found guilty of racketeering conspiracy and conspiring to distribute narcotics; Ellison was found guilty of racketeering conspiracy and kidnapping 6ix9ine. (Pitchfork)

Fashion Nova Hits Tekashi 6ix9ine With $2.25 Million Lawsuit

Tekashi 6ix9ine’s legal woes seem neverending at this point.

Fashion Nova is suing the disgraced rapper for a breach of contract for failing to promote the retail company. However, he was unable to do so because he’s been locked up.

FN gave the rapper a $225,000 advance for social media posts and a shout out on his DUMMY BOY debut. But he was arrested two weeks later and didn’t hold his end of the bargain.

The company also argues that he tanked his brand and personal image during his highly-publicized trial, so he’s no longer a good candidate for a brand ambassador.

Elsewhere in Fashion Nova’s suit, they said Tekashi 6ix9ine promised to return the advance but that never happened. Now they’re seeking $2.25 million.

The “STOOPID” rapper is scheduled to be released on August 2, 2020.

Tekashi 6ix9ine Prison Release Date Is Revealed And It Is Soon!

Controversial rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine’s prison release date is now available.

According to the Bureau of Prisons Inmate Locator, the rapper, real name Daniel Hernandez, will be released on August 2nd, 2020.

His lawyer, Daniel Lazzaro predicted last year his client would be finished his 24 month prison bid around July 2020. He was just shy of that mark.

The rapper, real name Daniel Hernandez, rose to fame quickly from singles “Billy” and his infamous internet trolling. His rescinded his affiliation with the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods and eventually became a top government witness.

His cooperation led to conviction of dozens of gang members with most receiving harsh sentences for racketeering. Tekashi faced 47 years in prison but the judge gave him leniency for his cooperation.

“Your cooperation was impressive. It was game-changing. It was complete and it was brave,” said Judge Englemayer at sentencing.

Instead he received two years from U.S. District Court Judge Englemayer in Manhattan Federal Court back in December 2019. Tekashi will be subject to five years of supervised release and hopes to return to his music career.

Tupac. Lil Wayne. Tekashi 6ix9ine. Bobby Shmurda. ASAP Rocky. DMX. Casanova. Foxy Brown. Maino. Now Harvey Weinstein. #RikersResidents

Harvey Weinstein has now joined the Rikers Island distinguished fraternity of criminals. Until he hears his sentencing, he will find himself behind bars at the jail that has housed the likes of Tupac, DMX, Foxy Brown, ASAP Rocky, and Casanova. Weinstein may even bump cafeteria trays with Brooklyn’s Bobby Shmurda or Tekashi 6ix 9ine. Either way, he is going to the clink.

Rikers Island will hold the disgraced movie exec who according to CNN may serve up a minimum of five years and a maximum of more than 20 years in prison.

It’s about to be crazy for him. He will not be treated any more special than the other celebs that have darkened these doors. Clearly, this has caused him some issues. After he was convicted on Mon. Feb. 24th and as they were transporting him to the jail, the panic kicked in. His chest had pains, heart palpitations and his blood pressure was raised so elevated they took him to Bellevue Hospital.

Good thing too.

According to CNN, Weinstein had a blockage in his heart and the doctors had to put a stent in his heart. On Thursday, he was taken to the prison’s infirmary.

Interestingly enough, Weinstein will be one of the last generations of lawbreakers to reside on the island of incarceration. Rikers will be closed before his term is completed. This sentencing is for his crimes in New York. He still will have to stand trial in Los Angeles for the #MeToo associated crimes with women that have worked for him and he sexually abused.

Nine Trey Gangster Aljermiah “Nuke” Mack Sentenced To 17 Years After Tekashi Testimony

Disgraced Brooklyn rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine continues to bring down his former squad, with the Nine Trey’s second in command being sentenced to 17 years in federal prison yesterday.

Tekashi, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, helped the feds land gun and drug charges against Aljermiah “Nuke” Mack after the 2018 federal take down of the Nine Trey Gangster Blood gang, which is based in the Bedford Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn, NY.

Mack held the “High 020” position, which is the second in command of the gang.

“You had a particular impact on the gang’s narcotics operations,” said Judge Paul Englemeyer during the sentencing. Federal prosecutors also requested that Mack, 34, serve his time on the West Coast, claiming “that a designation away from the seat of the power of New York Bloods will minimize the damage he can cause.”

For his ongoing cooperation, Hernandez received a mere two year federal prison sentence, of which will be fulfilled before the end of 2020.
