(AllHipHop News) An attorney for incarcerated rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine is calling for his misdemeanor assault case in Texas to be dropped after an arrest warrant was issued for a missed hearing.
6ix9ine had been ordered to appear before a Paris County judge on Thursday following claims that he had choked a 16-year-old during a dispute at a local mall in January.
He was a no-show, as he is currently being held behind bars for a federal case in New York, but his legal representative Carl Moore explains they have already taken steps to have the Texas count dropped.
His attorney presented paperwork from the alleged victim, who made amends with Tekashi following the disturbance and does not want the prosecution to move forward.
Moore is convinced he will win in having the case dismissed, and thus the warrant lifted, once everything is explained at a new hearing scheduled for after Christmas.
If prosecutors decline to drop the misdemeanor case, Tekashi faces up to a year in jail and a maximum fine of $4,000.
In comparison, he is already facing a life sentence if convicted of the six New York charges, which include conspiracy to murder.
He has pleaded not guilty, with his trial set for September 2019.
