Tekashi 6ix9ine is facing up to three years in prison for a sex video of a 13-year-old he posted in 2015. The rapper was up in court on Thursday after breaking the terms of his probation by getting arrested twice.
‘He has violated his plea agreement,’ Assistant District Attorney Sara Weiss told Manhattan Supreme Court. ‘The defendant should be sentenced to a state prison sentence of one to three years.’
The hip hop star, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, wore a neon yellow Adidas tracksuit to the hearing, as was accompanied by a team of minders. The 22-year-old, known for his rainbow-colored hair and extensive facial tattoos, was arrested on Wednesday at John F. Kennedy Airport after returning from the European leg of the tour, having missed a court date in a case in which he’s accused of choking a 16-year-old in Houston’s Galleria Mall back in January.
He was the busted in Brooklyn in May for unlicensed driving, and accused of assaulting a cop and obstruction of governmental administration.
As part of his plea deal, Tekashi was ordered to obtain his GED and not commit another crime for two years. If he did so, he would be given probation for three years and not have to register as a sex offender.
Last month Tekashi was allegedly robbed at gunpoint in Queens after a visit to a strip club.
It came after reports he was flaunting a $750,000 chain and between $15,000 and $20,000 in cash inside the bar
