As we reported here, after first seeing his request for early release from prison due to fear of contracting coronavirus denied, Tekashi 6ix9ine learned the decision was reversed Wednesday (April 1) – a feat that gave him the green light to end his stint behind bars.
Thursday (April 2), he’s set to begin his new life. Details inside:
Tekashi 6ix9ine has the coronavirus to thank for an even earlier prison release than expected — the judge just signed off on his request to get out to avoid infection from the coronavirus.
The judge agreed Thursday the rapper should be granted a compassionate release, effective immediately, from the NY facility where he’s been held. Instead of serving the rest of his 2-year sentence behind bars … he’ll do it at home.
Tekashi will be on supervised release. During his first 4 months of home incarceration, he’ll have a GPS monitor and must remain at an address approved by his probation officer. He can only leave if he needs to seek necessary medical treatment or visit his attorney — and he must get pre-approval from the Probation Department.
