6ix9ine Must Continue to Cooperate With Federal Government After He’s Released From Prison
On Wednesday (Dec. 18), 6ix9ine was sentenced to 24 months in prison after cooperating with authorities to help take down his former associates in the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods. After he gets out, he will still be beholden to the U.S. Attorney's Office if they need information on other cases.
As part of Tekashi's sentencing, he will be placed under five years of supervised release when his time behind bars is done. On Saturday (Dec. 21), XXL obtained legal documents that state the rapper must continue to cooperate with the Federal Government if they feel he could be useful to their investigation. In other words, authorities can utilize the Brooklyn rhymer as an informant whenever they see fit.
Tekashi has also been ordered to partake in an outpatient mental health program while he adjusts back to life on the outside.
As previously reported, along with his jail time, Judge Paul Engelmayer also sentenced 6ix9ine to 300 hours of community service. He also ordered the entertainer to pay a fine of $35,000.
"Mr. Hernandez, the worst part is over," Judge Engelmayer reportedly told the rapper after handing down the sentence. "There is a great deal to be admired about you. [You've] learned a hard lesson here. I wish you very very well."
The rapper's lawyer believes he will be out much sooner than his projected release date. According to the Tekashi's attorney, Lance Lazzaro, the rapper could be out of prison as early as next summer. 6ix9ine plans to continue his rapping career when he is released and has already signed a new record deal.
