CelebNMusic247.com has learned that 6ix9ine described what he called “robberies, assaults, drugs, stuff of that nature” in testimony against two men who prosecutors said were prominent within Nine Trey.
On Thursday, jurors in Federal District Court in Manhattan found those two men guilty of racketeering conspiracy and other offenses, marking an important victory for prosecutors who have now secured guilty pleas from or convicted several members of the gang, which was started decades ago on Rikers Island.
According to reports, 6ix9ine (Daniel Henandez) is said to have felt vindicated. His testimony has selled the fate of Anthony “Harv” Ellison and Aljermiah “Nuke” Mack who was found guilty of racketeering conspiracy after the jury’s 10-hour deliberation, according to reports Thursday
In addition to the racketeering conspiracy, Ellison was also convicted for kidnapping Tekashi in July 2018.
Ellison, who was once Tekashi’s bodyguard, was acquitted for the charge related to using weapons during the kidnapping. Mack was acquitted for a firearms charge as well.
Mack’s lawyer, Louis Fasulo, announced that Mack will appeal the ruling.
Obviously, he’s disappointed.
Ellison’s sentencing is set for Feb. 26, and he could get a life. Mack will be sentenced on Feb. 19 and is looking at up to 20 years.
A blonde-haired, middle-aged juror spoke out and said that she had no idea who Tekashi was, saying:
I never heard of him before… His music was interesting but not my style.
The New York Times reports:
The central testimony in the trial came from Mr. Hernandez and another former gang member turned government witness, Kristian Cruz. Mr. Cruz told jurors he once held the rank of “five-star general” in the gang and had sold millions of dollars of narcotics.
Their statements, along with recorded phone calls, text messages and social media posts, provided crucial insight into Nine Trey’s structure, operations and “violence against rival gangs and each other” in Brooklyn and Manhattan, a prosecutor, Jacob Edwin Warren, said last week during closing arguments.
Still, Tekashi himself faces racketeering charges. He could get at least 47 years behind bars, but thanks to his testimony, he also might not have to serve any time at all.
