Tekashi 6ix9ine’s release date from prison announced
Tekashi 6ix9ine’s prison release date has been revealed.
We finally know what day Tekashi 6ix9ine will be released from prison.
The Bureau of Prisons Inmate Locator says that 6ix9ine will be released on Aug. 2, 2020. His lawyer, Lance Lazzaro, has confirmed to Complex, through text message, that the date listed is correct.
Back in December, 6ix9ine was sentenced to 24 months in prison with five years supervised release for gun and racketeering charges. He was credited 13 months time served and was expected to be released in the fall. His lawyer predicted that he would be out early August.
During the rapper’s sentencing, Judge Engelmayer told the courtroom that 6ix9ine would have to complete community service and pay a fine once he’s released.
“I impose 300 hours of community service when you get out and a fine of $35,000. Mr. Hernandez, the worst part is over,” he said. “There is a great deal to be admired about you. [You’ve] learned a hard lesson here. I wish you very, very well.”
He also has to enroll in an outpatient mental health program and continue to cooperate with the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
Following his release from prison, the “Stoopid” rapper plans to move far away from New York.
According to TMZ, the rapper is planning to move far away after he’s released from prison, although any relocating will have to be approved by the federal probation department during his five-year supervised release.
The outlet also reports that 6ix9ine is looking to employ only former law enforcement officers or ex-military personnel that are licensed to carry firearms as his bodyguards. He reportedly doesn’t want to hire anyone with gang affiliation. However, 6ix9ine’s former bodyguards previously said he’ll have to pay a hefty price for their replacements, due to the large security risk that comes with protecting him following his release.
