Tekashi69’s Plea Deal Reveals Short Sentence and Witness Protection

Tekashi69’s plea deal is now public, and it looks like he will be getting less than the minimum sentence for the crimes. 

Tekashi was facing a minimum of 47 years and a maximum of life in prison after he pleaded guilty to racketeering, conspiracy, firearms offenses, and narcotics trafficking. 

The New York rapper has been cooperating with the feds as well as testifying in front of the Grand Jury. 

According to TMZ, the U.S. Attorney in the Southern District of New York agreed not to prosecute 6ix9ine for the “crimes set forth in Counts One through Nine.”

The plea deal also states, “It is understood that the defendant’s cooperation is likely to reveal the activities of individuals and that witness protection may be required at a later date.” 

The publication also states that prosecutors have agreed not to go after the rapper for the information he has provided to them but has not been charged for. 

It looks like if Tekashi keeps talking, he will be looking at a shorter sentence, which will be determined by the judge. “Should the defendant successfully cooperate, the government agrees that it will file at the time of sentencing a motion … for a sentence below any mandatory minimum.”
