Tekashi 6ix9ine's request to finish his sentence at home has been rejected by the court. According to the presiding judge, Paul Engelmayer, his time in prison is “necessary in this case … [to] reflect the seriousness of his crimes.”. Granting the jailed rapper his request would “eliminate the remaining prison component of his sentence in favour of lesser forms of confinement.”
However, Dawn Florio, One of 6ix9ine's attorneys, says they are still appealing the decision. If they are not successful Tekashi will have to serve his remaining sentence behind bars. He was sentenced in his racketeering case last month. With time served, he’s expected to be out in November 2020. Due to the 85 Percent rule, he could be out as early as July 2020.
