6ix9ine: D.A. Recommends Jail Time & Sex Offender Registration Manhattan D.A.’s Office claims rapper violated plea agreement by committing new crimes
In October 2015, Daniel Hernandez (aka Brooklyn rapper 6ix9ine or Tekashi69) pleaded guilty to the use of a child in a sexual performance. He entered into a plea agreement that stipulated he does not commit another crime for two years. Since then, Hernandez has been arrested for misdemeanor assault, driving with a suspended license, and allegedly assaulting a police officer. The sentencing date in his use of a child in a sexual performance case has also been pushed back multiple times.
On August 3, the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office filed a letter to the presiding judge, recommending that Hernandez be sentenced to 1-3 years in state prison. Prosecutors also want to require Hernandez to register as a sex offender, according to the letter, which was viewed by Pitchfork. Sentencing in the case has been adjourned until October 2. Pitchfork has reached out to representatives for Hernandez for comment and more information.
