EXCLUSIVE: Tekashi 6ix9ine Gets Police Escort From Prison To Start House Arrest
(AllHipHop News) Brooklyn rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine needed some law enforcement officers to get him out of prison so he can serve out the rest of his two-year prison sentence on house arrest.
The rapper was protected by a bunch of police officers as he headed to a private residence to finish the last four months of his sentence for racketeering with the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods.
"Delayed docketing of the Order will allow law enforcement agents to ensure that Mr. Hernandez is transported safely and securely from the facility where he is currently housed to a residential address previously approved by the Probation Department..." lead prosecutor Geoffrey Berman wrote to Judge Paul Engelmayer today (April 2) as the rap star was released.
Tekashi 6ix9ine had been begging Judge Engelmayer to release him, but the rapper was held up on a technicality because he was not considered an inmate with the Bureau of Prisons.
Initially, the Feds objected to Tekash 6ix9ine's request for an early release when prosecutor Geoffrey Berman asked Judge Paul Engelmayer to make the rainbow-haired rapper serve the last four months of his sentence in prison.
But the possibility of the rap star contracting the coronavirus became all too real when five inmates inside of the Queens Detention Facility were quarantined with symptoms of the coronavirus.
After some court wrangling and a possible outbreak within the prison, the Feds backed down and did not object 6ix9ine's release, paving the way for 6ix9ine to walk out of prison.
The government seems to be taking Tekashi 6ix9ine's security seriously, at least until he gets to his private residence.
"The Government respectfully submits that delayed docketing of the Order for a short period of time will ensure the safety of law enforcement agents and Mr. Hernandez upon his release from custody," prosecutor Geoffrey Berman wrote.
