New York Defense Attorney Sara Weiss wants #Tekashi69 behind bars, citing in a letter to the judge the rapper’s multiple plea agreement violations and the fact he has admitted to being part of 9 Trey Gang.
The letter to the judge was part of Tekashi’s 2015 case, in which he pleaded guilty to one count of using a child in a sexual act. Attorney Weiss is pursuing a one to three years sentence in jail for the rapper for violating his plea agreement. She wrote, “Defendant’s acknowledged membership in a violent Bloods set known as 9 Trey Bloods, along with an incident of gun violence perpetrated by this defendant’s entourage, make him an inappropriate candidate for adjudication as a Youthful Offender.” She also includes the two arrests this year, one in New York in May and the other in Texas weeks later.
According to The Blast, 6ix9ine claims he hasn’t violated the plea agreement because he hadn’t been convicted of anything yet and the terms of the agreement expired in 2017. Attorney Weiss says otherwise.
In regards to the plea agreement specifics, she claims “the plea agreement clearly states ‘[w]hether defendant is determined to have violated the terms and conditions of the agreement is left to the sole discretion of the Prosecutor.’” And when it comes to an “expiration” date, Weiss says Tekashi was ordered to “commit no new crimes prior to the sentencing date.” That sentencing date was pushed back several times because of Tekashi’s “own failure to obtained a GED, and his numerous requests for additional time to do so, that resulted in multiple adjournments and caused a lengthy delay in the sentencing date.”
6ix9ine has his next court date this week.
