6ix9ine’s (legal name: Daniel Hernandez) lawyer, Lance Lazzaro, spoke exclusively to Hollywood Life, revealing that the Internet rapper turned above-and-beyond cooperating government witness will be released in July 2020.
“We are a little disappointed, we were expecting time served because that is what the parole board recommended, but it was in the judge’s hands. Daniel will have to serve another 7 months and 12 days because the time he’s already served will count towards his sentence.”
“[6ix9ine is] feeling a little down right now but he’s strong, he’ll survive. The best thing to come out of today was closure, he knows he’ll be home in July and then he can focus on rebuilding his career and relationships.”
Judge Paul Englemayer sentenced 6ix9ine to 2 years with 5 years of supervised release on yesterday (12/18). In addition, Tekashi will have to pay a fine and do community service. It was initially expected that 6ix9ine would come home from prison in October of 2020 after the judge sentenced him to 2 years in prison but Lazarro’s statement says otherwise.
