AceShowbiz - Tekashi 6ix9ine wants to be out of prison as soon as possible. The rapper, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, has reportedly asked to serve the remainder of his sentence at home, citing safety concern as the reason.
According to court papers, the incarcerated star's lawyer Lance Lazzaro filed the documents on Tuesday, January 14, requesting that the judge allows his client to serve the rest of his 24-month sentence under home confinement or in a community correctional facility. The 23-year-old claims his life is seriously at risk because he snitched on the Nine Trey Gangster Bloods and the private jail where he's currently serving his sentence is full of the Blood members.
6ix9ine's lawyer argues moving his sentence under home confinement or in a community correctional facility is akin to punishing 6ix9ine because he won't get credit for early release at that facility.
"Allowing Hernandez to serve the remainder of his jail sentence under home confinement would be the most reasonable means to adjust and prepare for his re-entry into the community," Lance wrote to Manhattan federal court Judge Paul Engelmayer.
He went on arguing, "It would be a grave injustice for Hernandez to be denied the reasonable opportunity to adjust to and prepare for his re-entry into the community due to his cooperation with the government and placement in a private facility by the government for safety reasons."
In December 2019, 6ix9ine was sentenced to 24 months in prison. He got a significant reduce from the initial 47-year jail time that he faced for his involvement with the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods gang, for cooperating with the feds during the investigations.
In a following report, it's said that the "Gummo" hitmaker will have to have to enroll in a mental health program after he's released from prison. Court documents also revealed that he would have to continue to cooperate with federal investigators as he reports to the outpatient program as part of his plea deal.
