Tekashi 6ix9ine might be released early from prison and allowed to serve his remaining sentence at home on the grounds of the coronavirus pandemic.
Tekashi 6ix9ine had previously asked to serve the rest of his prison sentence from home due to coronavirus health fears as he suffers from severe asthma, however, there is no evidence that the rapper has any symptoms of the virus.
He was sentenced to 24 months in prison and was set to be released on 2nd August 2020, however a new document reveals he could be out of prison by the end of the day, should the Judge give the go-ahead.
In a document shared by court journalist Matthew Russell Lee, the judge revealed that the government had until 5pm to deny his release.
However, the document went on to say: “..his application to convert the balance of his term of imprisonment to home confinement is now administratively proper.
“The Court directs that the Government respond by no later than 5pm today. The parties are advised that, provided that the Court has legal authority to grant the relief requested by defence counsel, the Court intends to do so.
