After being denied his release last holiday season, 6ix9ine’s legal team hasn’t stopped trying to get the New York rapper home. Tuesday morning, Tekashi’s lawyer, Lance Lazzaro, asked New York Judge Engelmayer if his client could serve the rest of his sentence at home.
The 23-year-old rapper’s lawyer cited that safety reasons for his life are a concern; as they believe retaliation is in store after his cooperation with the federal government.
Lazzaro said in the letter, “Allowing Hernandez to serve the remainder of his jail sentence under home confinement would be the most reasonable means to adjust and prepare for his re-entry into the community. It would be a grave injustice for Hernandez to be denied the reasonable opportunity to adjust to and prepare for his re-entry into the community due to his cooperation with the government and placement in a private facility by the government for safety reasons.”
It’s unclear when the Manhattan federal court will make their decision; but we expect this to go under the radar, when he’s shipped to another safe house.
If Judge Engelmayer isn’t favorable to home confinement to 6ix9ine, his sentence could be finished at a community correctional facility with low level security.
