Tekashi 6ix9ine Released From Prison Early Due to Coronavirus
A New York judge has signed off on the early release of rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine from the New York prison where he's serving time for a racketeering conviction, TMZ reports. While the judge signed off on a "compassionate release" for Tekashi, he will still have to serve the remainder of time on his two-year-sentence in home confinement, including wearing a GPS monitoring device for the first four months. Prosecutors said they had no objections to the early release, as the rapper was already expected to be released later this summer. The judge also ruled that he believed Tekashi was no longer a threat to society.
