Sixth defendant in 6ix9ine racketeering case pleads guilty
Aaron “Bat” Young has pleaded guilty to racketeering.
On Friday (April 19), another co-defendant in the 6ix9ine racketeering case pleaded guilty.
Aaron “Bat” Young has become the sixth (out of eleven) defendant to plead ahead of the trial scheduled for September. After originally pleading not guilty back in December, Young, accompanied by attorney Aaron Mysliwiec, changed his plea to guilty.
Originally, Young was facing three charges: one racketeering charge (the one he pleaded to), one narcotics trafficking charge, and a firearms charge. Complex has confirmed the plea with the U.S. Attorney’s Office. Young is scheduled to be sentenced on July 30.
The latest news comes just two weeks after 6ix9ine’s attorney Dawn Florio teased a possible September 2019 release.
However, the only way a release is possible is if the remaining five defendants accept a plea deal and plead guilty, resulting in the trial being canceled.
Florio says if this happens, she plans to ask the judge to grant the rapper time served as he would have already satisfied his sentence under the conditions of his plea deal.
Young joins Jensel “Ish” Butler, Jamel “Mel Murda” Jones and Kifano “Shotti” Jordan as co-defendants that have taken a plea deal.
Reportedly, there is one of the remaining defendants that has decided to file a motion to dismiss the charges. If this unnamed person decides to follow through, 6ix9ine will have to go to trial.
Meanwhile, 6ix9ine’s longtime nemesis YG debuted a new song aimed towards the Brooklyn rapper called “Stop Snitching.” While performing the song at weekend one of Coachella, the Compton rapper displayed 6ix9ine’s mugshot on the large screens behind him while he rapped lyrics such as: “You got fear in your heart, so you cooperate / I guess that’s how b–h n–s operate.” A jab that criticizes 6ix9ine’s decision to cooperate with federal officials.
