Tekasi 69

Tekashi 69 is a free man -- sort of. A New York judge who earlier sentenced rapper Tekashi 69 to four years probation in his child sex case has closed the case and credited him for time served.

Eyebrows were raised in October when a judge sentenced the 22-year-old rapper to four years probation for violating the terms of his plea agreement.

Tekashi avoided serving 3 years in prison for using a minor child in an adult sex film.

Now some observers are saying the judge's decision may have helped the government's RICO case by leaving him out on the street so the feds could continue their investigation of his Treyway gang associates.

Tekashi, born Daniel Hernandez, was arrested on Nov. 18 along with his former manager and three other men. They were all charged with federal racketeering for running a criminal enterprise and firearms possession.

On Wednesday, the same judge who earlier sentenced Tekashi to probation, quietly closed his child sex case and dropped the 1,000 hours of community service he was required to perform as part of his probation.

The judge revoked the rapper's probation and gave him credit for time served -- essentially making him a free man as far as the state of New York is concerned.

But Tekashi is still cooling his heels in a federal prison facility after another judge rejected his request for bail. Tekashi faces life in prison if convicted on all charges.

His child sex case dates back to 2015, after he was caught on camera with a naked 13-year-old engaged in a sex act with another man at a party.

Tekashi pleaded guilty to one count of Use of a Child in a Sexual Performance.

    There should never be credits given for sex crimes...keep them in cage..let the ones with marijuana cases go if u need the room...

    That judge said, “Let him be somebody else’s headache now. Next case!”

    Disgusting. However; the inmates are going to remember he was a sex offender and being a sex offender when a child is involved is the worst thing you could be in prison.

  • TruthshallsetUFree!!!!

    Tekashi is a poser that got caught up

  • Applebum

    The judge only closed that case because they know he’s about to be hit with a huge sentencing from the racketeering case.

    They're sweeping the dust from around the rug to under the rug. T69's lawyer is quietly negotiating deals in exchange for testimony and immunity or reduced sentencing not these RICO charges.
    I wonder who will play T69 in the movie. There's a kid at Kroger who looks like him without the Tatts.

  • Allihave2say

    He' be released but he'll never be free. There will always be a mark and worry with this man. Even if they put him in witness protection the Tatts will always sell him out. He will need an entire redo in prison.

  • Thee Jaguar Doll

    My Brother was charged with RICO here in Texas. They offered Him less time if he snitched but he didn't tho. Gave Him 2 life sentences, (2) 60 year sentences (concurrent) & (1) 30 year sentence. If 69 snitched, It'll be published in black and white & So obvious if he only does a few years.
