Tekashi 6ix9ine may be a free man in just a matter of hours after the judge in his criminal case ordered his intention to let the rapper finish the rest of his sentence on house arrest.
According to legal documents, obtained by The Blast, Tekashi 69’s lawyer filed a letter with the court, explaining that the Federal Bureau of Prison’s in New York was denying the rapper’s request to be released. But, not because they think he should remain locked up, just they have no jurisdiction to release him.
So, in shocking response, the judge in Tekashi’s case ordered prosecutors to respond by 5:00 pm today, or he will RELEASE the ‘Gummo’ rapper!
Tekashi’s lawyer filed the letter from the BOP which reads…
“Dear Mr. Lazzaro: The Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) is in receipt of your correspondence requesting compassionate release consideration for your client, Daniel Hernandez (federal register no. 86335-054). As you are aware, Mr. Hernandez remains in the custody of the United States Marshals Service at a private facility. Because Mr. Hernandez is not in BOP custody, BOP cannot evaluate him for compassionate release and will not be seeking a motion for compassionate release on his behalf at this time.”
But, this was the opening his legal team needed to go back to his original judge who had also previously said he had no jurisdiction.
Now the shocking part…
As we reported, Tekashi is asking a judge to spend the next 4 months on house arrest, based on his fear of contracting the Coronavirus. The rapper claims he suffers from severe asthma and could DIE if he catches the disease. As you can imagine, he points out that prison is a terrible place to ‘social distance’ based on the confined space.
We’ve obtained a copy of the judge’s order, and it is clear…Tekashi 69 will be released from prison unless somehow the prosecutors in his case can sway the judge to change his mind.
The judge writes in his order, “The Court has received an application from counsel for Daniel Hernandez, Dkt. 445, representing that the Bureau of Prisons has now denied his request for compassionate relief and that the Court’s review…of his application to convert the balance of his term of imprisonment to a term of home confinement is now administratively proper. The Court directs that the Government respond by no later than 5 p.m. today. The parties are advised that, provided that the Court has legal authority to grant the relief requested by defense counsel, the Court intends to do so SO ORDERED.”
In other words, he will most likely get OUT!
It isn’t 100 percent, but this is the closest he has been to freedom in a long time!
