In anticipation of his sentencing on December 18th, Tekashi 6ix9ine has written a letter to the judge to plead for a light sentence for his RICO charges. In the letter 6ix9ine renounces his gang ties and apologizes for his crimes. He also gives insight into why it took him less than a day to decide he would snitch, rather than face up to 47 years behind bars.
He says, “Prior to my arrest, I was kidnapped by members of the gang, became aware of the fact the mother of my child was having sexual relations with one of my co-defendants and that they were stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from me,” 6ix9ine wrote. “I had a feeling of relief when I was arrested by the Government because I felt stuck, like the gang had control of my life and I would never be able to escape their grip. I needed to do something before it was too late.”
Some experts anticipate that Tekashi will be released with time served. Check out the entire letter below.
