Tekashi 6ix9ine's Lawyer Explains Why He Hasn't Applied For Bail

Earlier this week, we learned two things about Tekashi 6ix9ine's legal situation.

First, that he might lose his lawyer Lance Lazzaro for conflict of interest, as Lazzaro had previously represented two of 6ix9ine's co-defendants.

Second, his legal team never proposed the $1.5 million bail package they were said to be preparing.

It turns out these two things are related. 

"The lawyers for two of the defendants raised issues of conflict of interest that Lance Lazzaro had represented two other co-defendants in the case and the judge removed him from the case until the conflicts could be waived by Mr. Hernandez and also by [6ix9ine's co-defendants'] respective clients," one of 6ix9ine's other lawyers, Dawn Fiorio, told XXL.

"So until that could be done, Lance is not representing Daniel Hernandez [6ix9ine] right now because of what happened, of course, we're going to postpone the bail hearing until Lance can come back on the case."

Lazarro now has to detail to the judge the work he did for  6ix9ine's former manager Kifano "Shotti" Jordan and for Faheem "Crippy" Walter. The judge will determine if there is a conflict of interest or not.
