(AllHipHop News) The federal case against Daniel "Tekashi 6ix9ine" Hernandez could officially be coming to an end in the near future. Hernandez and several other individuals have already pleaded guilty to various charges, and 6ix9ine is cooperating with the prosecutors.
While Tekashi, Kifano "Shotti" Jordan, Jamel "Mel Murda" Jones, and Jensel "Ish" Butler have agreed to plea deals with the government, other defendants are still holding out. According to TMZ, Tekashi and his legal team are hoping none of the remaining men go to trial because it could mean the Brooklyn rapper will be freed from prison by the end of the year.
The entertainment website reports:
Tekasahi's attorney, Dawn Florio, tells us if the other men strike plea deals and the trial is called off ... they'll ask a judge to grant 6ix9ine time served -- he's been locked up since November. If the judge grants it, he'd walk free because he's fulfilled his obligations under his cooperation agreement with authorities.
Last November, the U.S. Attorney’s Office of the Southern District of New York charged alleged members of the Nine Trey Bloods gang Tekashi 6ix9ine, Shotti, Mel Murda, Ish, Faheem "Crippy" Walter, and Fugan "Fu Banga" Lovick with racketeering. In January, Anthony "Harv" Ellison, Denard "Drama" Butler, and Kintea "Kooda B" McKenzie were indicted for racketeering and firearms offenses.
“As alleged in the superseding indictment, the new defendants in this case, like those previously charged, engaged in brazen acts of gun violence. Thanks to our remarkable partners at HSI, ATF, and the NYPD, these defendants now face federal charges for their serious crimes," stated U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman.
