The judge who sentenced the rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine to prison. Said on Wednesday he would have ordered home confinement instead. If he had known about the coronavirus in December.
U.S. District Judge Paul A. Engelmayer said in a written order. Even as he rejected a lawyer’s request that the 23-year-old performer. Whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, be confined at home for the remaining four months of his two-year prison term.
He said he didn’t have legal authority to change the sentence. Which prosecutors pointed out when they opposed the request.
The judge at sentencing called his cooperation “game changing.” As well as complete and brave while Tekashi 6ix9ine expressed remorse.
In 2018, he had a multiplatinum hit song, “Fefe,” with Nicki Minaj. Which peaked at No. 3 on the pop charts, and “Stoopid,” featuring imprisoned rapper Bobby Shmurda.
