Back in September, Tekashi 6ix9ine went to court and told the judge on members of the Nine Trey Bloods who robbed him and about his affiliations with them. He also said fellow New York rapper Jim Jones is part of Nine Trey and Cardi is gang affiliated in some way.
6ix9ine was facing 47 years in prison for his racketeering, murder conspiracy, drugs, and weapons case but he was hopefully that snitching in court would lower that. That doesn’t appear to be the case as according to court documents obtained by The Blast, 6ix9ine could still get 37 years. Prosecutors simply think that this is the right amount of time for him.
Factors playing into the 37 years are his probation for sexual misconduct, being gang affiliated, and having sexual relations with a minor under 17. The case with the underage girl is labeled as a class C felony. 6ix9ine had sent in a letter to the judge asking for a lighter sentence by noting that his snitching helped gang members get charged.
“I now know that I am remorseful for what happened because I was blessed with the gift of an opportunity that most people dream of but I squandered it by getting involved with the wrong people and misrepresenting myself when I should have been true to myself and my fans,”
In the end, the possibility of 37 years is very surprising. Many thought that 6ix9ine could’ve gotten off as a free man after snitching. It’ll be interesting to see the result though when this case finally gets to trial. He’s been in prison since last November as well after being taken into federal custody.
