Tekashi 6ix9ine Begs Judge for Second Chance in Letter


Tekashi 6ix9ine wrote a letter to the judge in his case ahead of sentencing, begging for a second chance and telling him that he had deep remorse over his actions.

6ix9ine pleaded guilty in February to racketeering and firearms charges, which would have brought a minimum 47 year sentence. However, he’s been cooperating against his fellow gang members since his arrest, which is likely to bring him a substantially reduced sentence, possible with no further jail time. Prosectors filed a letter also recommending a reduced sentence.

The letter to Judge Paul A. Engelmayer addressed his squandered opportunities and awareness of his mistakes.

“I find it difficult to find the right words to express what my life has been like for the last year,” Hernandez wrote. “It honestly feels like my world is crashing down. There is no excuse, no justification and no apology good enough in this world to explain my crimes. While I have been incarcerated, I have had time to reflect on the recklessness and foolishness of my decisions… I’m happy that the public was able to witness me dealing with the consequences of my actions because I feel like it sheds a light on what can come from gang affiliation. I know that this is part of the plan that God has for me and I am confident that I am ready to face this thing head on.”

He continued, saying, “I had a feeling of relief when I was arrested by the Government because I felt stuck, like the gang had control of my life and that I would never be able to escape their grip,” Hernandez wrote. “I needed to do something before it was too late.”

He took responsibilty for his situation, saying “my actions contributed to this mess.” He then added, “I now know that I am remorseful for what happened because I was blessed with the gift of an opportunity that most people dream of but I squandered it by getting involved with the wrong people and misrepresenting myself when I should have been true to myself and my fans. I’m sorry to the victims who were affected by my actions, to my fans who look up to me and were misled, to my family  who depends on me and to this courtroom for this mess that I contributed to.”

Tekashi is set to be sentenced on Dec. 18th.
