Tekashi 69's Plea Deal Could Reportedly Secure His Freedom & Witness Protection

Controversial rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine might soon be a free man, with details of his plea deal recently being made public.

The 22-year-old rapper born Daniel Hernandez, was facing more than four decades in prison on nine federal charges including racketeering, conspiracy, and narcotics trafficking. The U.S. Attorney agreed "not to prosecute for the crimes set forth in Counts One through Nine", TMZ reports, which means that various charges are off limits.

As reported earlier, Tekashi 6ix9ine has entered a plea deal with NY courts in order to significantly down bring his 47 year sentence.

Ultimately, a federal judge will determine the terms of Tekashi 6ix9ine's sentencing during a hearing scheduled for January 24th, 2020. As a result of this, his previous 47-year-minimum sentence could be reduced to under a year and considering that he entered the plea on January 23rd, it is possible that he could be free by early next year.

NBA All-Star Game 2019: Durant earns MVP honors
When watching the NBA All-Star Weekend, it was impossible to miss Kyrie Irving schmoozing it up with Kevin Durant. That brings us to a new behind-the-scenes video that started making the rounds after the NBA All-Star Game .

The plea deal notes that the U.S. Attorney's Office in the Southern District of NY have agreed "not to prosecute the defendant for the crimes set forth in Counts One through Nine....as well as additional crimes that the defendant has told the government about" in exchange for his full cooperation.

6ix9ine is reportedly also eligible for witness protection which, if granted, will be a tricky thing to pull off considering his appearance is pretty much unmissable what with the giant "69" tattoo on his forehead, and all.

Innerestingly, the agreement even specifically mentions Tekashi being placed in "witness protection" - and considering the crimes the folks he's flipping on are accused of, hiding seems like a good idea to us.

Following his guilty plea, the rapper has copped mass criticism from fellow musicians including 50 Cent, Meek Mill and Boosie Badazz, among others.
