Tekashi 6ix9ine’s former manager Shotti will be sentenced by a judge this week and prosecutors want him locked up for 15 years.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, prosecutors are laying out their case prior to Shotti’s (real name: Kifano Jordan) sentencing, which is scheduled for September 6.
Shotti was arrested on federal charges around the same time Tekashi was locked up for the same crimes.
In their motion they argue, “The defendant was a high-ranking member of the racketeering enterprise known as the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods (“Nine Trey”).”
The motion points out several incidents of acts of violence committed by Shotti and Tekashi.
They start with a 2017 incident where, “The defendant, along with other members of Nine Trey, including Daniel Hernandez, a/k/a “Tekashi 6ix 9ine” and Anthony Ellison, a/k/a “Harv,” followed a rival rap artist, who was a member of a different Bloods set (“Individual-1”), from Brooklyn to a hotel in Manhattan. After they arrived in Manhattan, the defendant and Ellison ran into the hotel lobby, confronted Individual-1 and his entourage, and Ellison punched Individual-1 in the face.”
In the newly filed docs, they also detail a March 2018 incident where Shotti allegedly fired off five rounds against a rival gang member.
Prosecutors list another incident, “On April 3, 2018, the defendant and others traveled from Brooklyn to midtown Manhattan in order to rob a rival gang member and rapper (the “April 3 Robbery”), who was in a public feud with Hernandez.”
Further, “Apart from the acts of violence detailed above, cooperating witnesses would testify that Jordan arranged to have Individual-4, another Nine Trey member, bring firearms to New York from Georgia. In addition, a cooperating witness, who was a member of Nine Trey, would testify that he supplied approximately 150 grams of heroin to Jordan on consignment, but that Jordan never paid the cooperating witness for the drugs.”
Earlier this year, Shotti reached a plea deal with prosecutors and plead guilty. The government notes that he was one of the first to cooperate with them. “In this regard, the defendant almost immediately accepted responsibility for his conduct.”
However, they add, “The defendant is 37 years old and, despite several convictions, he has never served a lengthy period of incarceration. Should the Court sentence the defendant to the Guidelines range of 180 months’ imprisonment, he will likely be imprisoned until he is nearly 50 years old. In addition, he will be placed on a term of supervised release. Hopefully, the defendant will have been deterred from being a part of a gang, and committing acts of violence, upon his release from prison.”
A judge will determine Shotti’s fate later this week.
