It seems 6ix9ine’s music career could be in jeopardy.
On Aug. 3, the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office submitted letter to the court, recommending a one-to-three year prison sentence for the controversial rapper. Prosecutors say 6ix9ine—legal name Daniel Hernandez—violated the terms of a plea deal stemming from his 2015 child sex charges. The 22-year-old pleaded guilty to Use of a Child in a Sexual Performance in exchange for a no-jail sentence; however, the D.A. says 6ix9ine failed to abide by the terms, as he has been arrested multiple times since the plea was accepted.
The letter read: “Defendant has had over two years to demonstrate to this Court that the role he played in the sexual exploitation of a thirteen-year-old child was an aberration in his otherwise law abiding life. He has failed to do so.”
6ix9ine has since been arrested on two different occasions: He was placed behind bars after he allegedly choked a teenager at a Texas mall in January, and landed in jail again after he was caught driving without a license in May; 6ix9ine was also accused of assaulting a police officer in the latter incident. The rapper has also failed to obtain his GED as required by the plea agreement.
