6ix9ine was initially indicted back in November and had been facing the possibility of life in prison. It’s unclear what sentence he’ll face now after entering the guilty pleas.
6ix9ine was involved in dealing heroin, fentanyl, ecstasy, amphetamines and marijuana.
The feds say the conspiracy consisted of multiple acts of murder, robbery and extortion.
In docs, the feds refer to video TMZ first posted of Tekashi boldly offering, on camera, a $30,000 bounty for someone to shoot Chief Keef‘s cousin. According to the feds, he “aided and abetted the shooting at rivals of Nine Trey [Bloods gang] at a hotel in Times Square.”
As you know, someone opened fire on Keef and his cousin back in June, in Times Square, just days after Tekashi’s offer.
The unsealing of Tekashi’s plea came just one day after 3 of his associates were also indicted. We broke the story … law enforcement sources tell us Tekashi dropped a dime on the alleged trigger man in the Keef shooting.
6ix9ine’s sentencing is scheduled for January 24, 2020.
In court, Tekashi says he joined the Nine Trey Bloods in the fall of 2017 and in March 20, 2018 … he admits helping members of the gang attempt to kill a rival to “increase my own standing in Nine Trey.” Then on April 3, he says he, and other members, robbed a rival at gunpoint.
He got into the Chief Keef shooting … saying in court, “I paid a person to shoot at a rival member of Nine Trey to scare him. The shooting took place in Manhattan. I did this to maintain or increase my own standing in Nine Trey.” He admits knowing a fellow gang member was the trigger man.
Tekashi also admitted to selling a kilo of heroin in 2017 — and offered an apology for all his crimes, saying … “I apologize to the Court, to anyone who was hurt, to my family, friends and fans for what I have done and who I have let down.”
Tekashi has struck a plea deal which will increase the likelihood of a significantly reduced sentence in return for ongoing cooperation. Although the minimum sentence is 47 years, the way it typically works is the prosecution will ask for significantly less … which is his incentive to keep snitchin'.
