A federal judge has denied Tekashi 6ix9ine’s solicitation to carry out his jail punishment at home in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.
Judge Paul Engelmayer denied the solicitation on Wednesday yet said that he would have requested home confinement rather on the off chance that he had thought about the coronavirus when he gave the sentence in December.
“At the time of sentencing … the Court did not know and could not have known that the final four months of Mr Hernandez’s sentence would be served at a time of a worldwide pandemic to which persons with asthma, like Mr Hernandez, have heightened vulnerability,” Englemayer said.
Engelmayer said he didn’t have the lawful power to change the sentence, which examiners brought up when they contradicted the solicitation made by Tekashi 6ix9ine, whose genuine name is Daniel Hernandez.
In any case, he included that he was giving “instructive guidance” that the Bureau of Prisons can utilize on the off chance that it considers an application by Hernandez, 23, for early discharge to home repression.
The lawyer said the rapper is carrying out his punishment in a private prison since he helped out investigators and in light of the fact that the legislature has control of him as a cooperator.
Hernandez was captured in 2018 on racketeering, weapons and medications charges, however, his declaration against individuals from the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods posse earned him tolerance and his participation with examiners helped him land a spot in a private jail for his own wellbeing.
