The rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine- real identify Daniel Hernandez- has been given a two-year prison sentence as well as five years of supervised release following accuses of federal racketeering.
After his release from prison, Hernandez, 23, has been ordered to serve 300 hours of community service and to pay a fine worth $35,000.
This sentencing was given despite Hernandez’ collaboration with the US Attorney’s office in a case against his fellow members of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods, a limb of the United Blood Nation street gang which operates on the east coast of the US.
Hernandez has invested nearly a year in federal prison, after being arrested in 2018 on federal racketeering charges.
However, as reported by Rolling Stone, it was ruled the charges against Hernandez were too serious for these months to be considered time provided, with the 13 months time provided counting as part of the brand-new two-year sentence.
Handing down the convict, Judge Paul Engelmayer induced the following comments, as per courtroom reports from Inner City Press 😛 TAGEND
You are in custody for 13 months. I concur you deserve a great deal of credit for cooperation.
However, I cannot is in agreement with your attorney that time served it is necessary. In my judgment, your conduct is too violent and selfish to stimulate 13 months reasonable. You will not be going free today.
Judge Engelmayer added 😛 TAGEND
Before you, the gang didn’t fight with rap suites. They has no such independent interest in going after musicians and their management working group . … I reject the likenes of you as a passive participant.

Hernandez was arrested in 2018 and slapped with nine overlapping costs for artillery belonging, attempted slaying and gang activity.
He initially pleaded not guilty, but changed his plea to guilty as of January 2019. Within this same time period, it was reported Hernandez had opted to cooperate with the government, however it was later understood he had begun working with the prosecution the very next day following his arrest.
Even after plead guilty, Hernandez was still looking at a 37 year prison sentence, although his testimony gave him a 51 K letter in which prosecutors recommended a reduced convict.
Hernandez also mailed a note of his own to Judge Engelmayer, carrying compunction over his actions as well as his affiliations with the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods.
