Today is the day of reckoning for Tekashi 6ix9ine, who had faced up to 47 years on racketeering and weapons charges before flipping and becoming a government witness.

For his work for the Feds, which had been described as "extraordinary,"  Judge Paul Engelmayer has sentenced 6ix9ine to 24 months and five years of supervised probation. He has already served 13 months.

This will come as shock to many of 6ix9ine's fans and his team, who had fully expected him to be released today. 

It was looking like it was headed that direction when the Assistant US Attorney reiterated how helpful 6ix9ine had been for their case against the rest of the Nine Treys.

Tekashi 6ix9ine's lawyer Lance Lazzaro then explained how 6ix9ine was a good kid from modest means before he linked up with the Tr3way gang, who used and stole from him. 6ix9ine told the judge he wasn't a victim, but explained he had denounced the Nine Treys before he was arrested, having come to realize they were using and abusing him.

6ix9ine also told the judge about all of the good works he had done.

     

Despite all of that, Judge Engelmayer gave 6ix9ine more time, citing his numerous crimes, including incidents involving Chief Keef, Trippie Redd, Casanova, and Rap-A-Lot. He also referenced his previous use of a child in a sexual performance conviction.

 

When 6ix9ine does get out he is eligible for witness protection. However, he is expected to turn that down and resume his rap career. When he was locked up he signed a two-album ten million dollar deal with 10K records, who he had worked with before.

Are you surprised by the sentence?
