A federal judge has denied Tekashi 6ix9ine's request to serve his 24 months under home confinement. According to TMZ, yesterday (January 21st) Judge Paul Engelmayer ruled that the rapper must remain in jail for the remaining 10 months of his sentence.
He wrote, “The Court’s determination was, and is, that a 24-month prison sentence is necessary in this case. A shorter sentence would disserve the assembled [factors], including that Mr. Hernandez’s sentence reflect the seriousness of his crimes.”
The judge acknowledged that the private jail where Tekashi remains doesn’t have the rehabilitative programs of other facilities, but said that granting his request would “eliminate the remaining prison component of his sentence in favor of lesser forms of confinement.”
As previously reported, Tekashi requested home confinement out of fear for his safety
