A judge has closed #Tekashi69’s sexual misconduct case in New York while he is currently locked up awaiting trial.
The judge revoked Tekashi’s 4-year probation sentence and gave him credit for time served, according to @TMZ_tv. He also no longer has to perform 1,000 hours of community service.
Apparently the judge cited Tekashi’s federal racketeering case as a reason for the decision. Tekashi’s lawyer further explained that because Tekashi is incarcerated on the federal case, authorities cannot enforce the terms of probation, nor can they enforce community service.
Just to refresh y’all, Tekashi was sentenced to four years of probation in his child sex case, which was what his legal team had hoped for. As part of the deal, he was told to refrain from any crime and kicking it with any gang members as well as avoiding all gang activity.
However, shortly after that hearing, gunfire erupted nearby where Tekashi was celebrating his victory, and one of his bodyguards was struck. He was not seriously hurt.
Recently, Tekashi pleaded not guilty in his racketeering case. The judge that’s handling his case set his trial date for September 4th, 2019, which means that Tekashi will be locked up probably for majority of that time.
Tekashi’s attorney, Lance Lazzaro, is still hopeful that he can get him out on bail. It was previously reported that Lance plans on going straight to the trial judge to apply for his bail. Tekashi’s initial bail request was denied, even after he offered to pay $750k and give up his passport and stay on house arrest.
In case you missed this additional tea, Tekashi’s two former associates, and his former manager have been locked up for about a week now on a slew of charges. Authorities say that Tekashi and his crew plotted to commit several crimes, from armed robberies, shootings, and drug deals.
If convicted, Tekashi is facing up to life in prison.
