Headlines 19/12/2019

The enigma that is Tekashi 6ix9ine has finally been sentenced after a lengthy legal procession, earning himself a two-year prison sentence and five years of supervised release.

According to Complex:

"The sentence includes the 13 months already served, which means he is expected to be free late 2020. When he is released from prison he will serve 300 hours of community service and pay a $35,000 fine."

"You are in custody for 13 months. I agree you deserve a great deal of credit for cooperation," Judge Paul Engelmayer said at the top of his sentencing, per Inner City Press' reporting from the courtroom. "However, I cannot agree with your counsel that time served it appropriate. In my judgment, your conduct is too violent and selfish to make 13 months reasonable. You will not be going free today."

The judge also noted, "Before you, the gang didn't fight with rap entourages. They had no independent interest in going after musicians and their management groups. ... I reject the portrait of you as a passive participant."
