A few days ago, Tek avoided going to prison in a 2015 sexual misconduct case and instead received probation.
Today in a Manhattan courthouse, Judge Felicia A. Mennin sentenced Tekashi 6ix9ine, the Brooklyn rapper born Daniel Hernandez, to four years of probation (with credit for one year previously served) for charges stemming from his 2015 arrest for the use of a child in a sexual performance. He is not required to register as a sex offender. (Pitchfork)
6ix9ine is also required to complete 1,000 hours of community service and must refrain from gang affiliation and the posting or reposting online sexually explicit or violent images of women or children. (Pitchfork)
Back in August, Tek addressed his publicized case and explained the motivation behind accepting a plea deal.
“I know I troll a lot but for the people who care and the people that are making it their priority to care about my personal life, I want you to take a second and look at my case. Right? Three and a half years ago, I’m not this famous rapper that has $10,000 to pay for a private lawyer. I had to settle for a public defender. A court ordered lawyer. At this time, I’m scared. They’re saying you’re going to get 15 years and I’m like, ‘No. I’ve got a daughter on the way.’ It’s 2015. I’m 18 years old. I’m like, ‘No.’ Give me anything but jail time. If you look into the case, this is just another story of a minority, a youth being under the court system built for me to fail. For the people saying, ‘Tekashi, you’re not taking this serious.’ I am. Trust me. I am. I’m just not going to let that affect me.”
