Following yesterday’s indictment, it’s been revealed that six of the 17 charges brought against rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine, his ex-manager Shotti (Kifano Jordan), Ish (Jensel Butler), Crippy (Faheem Walter), and Fu Banga (Fuguan Lovick) are against Tekashi himself. The court documents read that Tekashi, real name Daniel Hernandez, and his group conspired to commit crimes, such as armed robberies and shootings.
“[Hernandez] is a member of a violent sect of the Bloods,” said Assistant US Attorney Michael Longyear at the arraignment. “This defendant participated in multiple acts of violence.”
In addition to the violent crimes brought against Hernandez and his group, they’re also accused of selling heroin, fentanyl, MDMA and marijuana in New York.
If found guilty, Hernandez could face possible life sentence and a mandatory minimum of 32 years in prison.
6ix9ine’s lawyer, Lance Lazzaro, told TMZ that he has been placed among the general population at Brooklyn’s Metropolitan Detention Center, “as opposed to being held in a segregated part of the federal pen … due to his celeb status.”
Hernandez’s scheduled bail hearing for today was pushed to Wednesday since the judge was unavailable.
