A new sentencing date for Tekashi 6ix9ine has been set by the Judge Paul Englemayer. According to sources, the judge settled for motion to postpone the original date and will determine the rainbow-haired rapper’s fate on December 18, 2019. The date had previously been set for January 24, 2020.
6ix9ine served as the government’s star witness last month in the case of alleged Nine Trey gang members Anthony “Harv” Ellison and Aljermiah “Nuke” Mack. As a result of his testimony, Ellison and Mack were both convicted of multiple felonies.
Ellison was found guilty of kidnapping in aid of racketeering as well as racketeering conspiracy and maiming and assault with a dangerous weapon in aid of racketeering, while Mack was found guilty of racketeering conspiracy and narcotics trafficking. Ellison and Mack will be sentenced in February.
6ix9ine initially faced a minimum of 47 years in prison to all the crimes he plead guilty to. But his cooperation with the feds makes it possible for him be out as early as the begining of 2020. He’s been imprisoned since his November 2018 arrest.
