The Hip-Hop star has the coronavirus to thank for a considerably prior jail release than anticipated – the adjudicator simply approved his solicitation to get out to prison from contamination from the coronavirus.
The judge concurred on Thursday the rapper ought to be allowed compassionate release immediately from the NY facility where he’s been held. Rather than serving the remainder of his 2-year sentence in a prison cell … he’ll do it at home.
Tekashi will be on supervised release. During his initial 4 months of home detainment, he’ll have a GPS monitor and should stay at a location affirmed by his probation officer. AccordinAccording o the judge, he can possibly leave on the off chance that he needs to look for medical attention or visit his lawyer – and he should get pre-endorsement from the probation office.
On the off chance that, in any way, shape or form, the GPS observing can’t or breaking down … Tekashi must have a day by day videoconference with his probation officer. In this way, he’ll resemble a large portion of us … abruptly utilizing Zoom, Skype or FaceTime to remain associated.
Tekashi’s legal advisors, Lance Lazzaro and Dawn Florio, were going filling motion to gain his release.
From the start, Judge Engelmayer denied 6ix9ine’s solicitation since he said he didn’t, in fact, have the ability to release him.
He directed the team to file a request with the Bureau of Prisons and said they were the ones who could bust him out early … but then that department said they couldn’t help him because Tekashi was in a private facility under the watch of the U.S. Marshals Service, instead of a BOP facility.
As a result, the ball was back in Judge Engelmayer’s court, and hizzoner just handed down the order releasing Tekashi to serve the remainder of his sentence in home confinement.
BTW … prosecutors said they had no objection to the compassionate release so long as the judge found there were indeed “extraordinary and compelling reasons” due to his medical conditions that’d place him at high risk during the outbreak. Yep, he did.
You’ll recall … Tekashi was supposed to be getting out later this summer after his conviction on racketeering charges last year. But, in light of the COVID-19 outbreak — and preexisting conditions, he claims he is potentially high-risk in a prison setting — 6ix9ine took the opportunity to ask to be sent home even earlier.
According to TMZ “We’ve obtained docs that further explain the judge’s decision … saying they believe Tekashi is no longer considered a threat to society and he’d already served most of his sentence. They also delayed submitting the court ruling until he was safely at home”.
