The thirteen months he has already completed will be deducted from his 24 months, so Tekashi will probably be released by the end of 2020.
In an effort to show that he was trying to be a better person, Tekashi also offered to pay for the medical bills of a woman who was injured during one of the gang's shootings. On various charges, he faced a sentence of up to 37 years in prison. Before you, the gang didn't fight with rap entourages.
The 23-year-old rapper appeared in federal court in NY on Wednesday, with Judge Paul A. Engelmayer sentencing Tekashi - né Daniel Hernandez - to 24 months in prison (with credit for 13 months served), five years of supervised release, 300 hours of community service and a $35,000 fine, according to multiple outlets.
The rapper, born Daniel Hernandez was arrested in November 2018. He also said that the rapper is not the typical cooperator and that he will be the target of gangs.
The ruling came after federal prosecutors contacted the Judge, asking for a much lighter sentence for 6ix9ine given his cooperation since he's been behind bars. Ellison was also found guilty of 6ix9ine's kidnapping, while Mack was convicted of distributing drugs. Prosecutors said in court filings that he and other gang members carried out a March 2018 shooting in Times Square, an April 2018 shooting at the Barclays Center, a June 2018 shooting at the W Hotel in Times Square, and more. Identifying other members of the Nine Trey Bloods gang, he reportedly named hip-hop stars Cardi B and Jim Jones.

The broad-based S&P 500 was up a hair at 3,192.52, while the tech-rich Nasdaq Composite Index advanced 0.1 per cent to 8,823.36. In its policy meeting last week, the Fed stood pat on interest rates, as expected, and kept the bar high for future reductions.
Prosecutors have described Nine Trey as one of the most violent outgrowths of United Bloods Nation, with members throughout the country. "The attacks would not have happened without you". That might be partially true. They got something out of it. "It's a common motif..."
He noted that many artists sing about organised crime, citing Bruce Springsteen's "Murder Incorporated".
"Your choice to join Nine Trey was unnecessary". "I failed these people. they believed in Daniel Hernandez". That excuse is not available to you. You had a prosperous future. Engelmayer said he caused mayhem around the city and used the gang as his "personal hit squad". "You were set. As a result of your musical career, you could have gotten the advice of security people, and presumably lawyers and accountants". While Judge Engelmayer agreed that the defendant deserved "a great deal of credit" for his cooperation, he was adamant that he could not bring himself to agree with Lazzaro that time served was appropriate.
"Mr. Hernandez, if you expected to be released today, you will be disappointed". You're learned a hard lesson here.
