Feds say Tekashi 6ix9ine will testify against violent gang members.
Days after Tekashi 6ix9ine‘s former manager, Kifano “Shotti” Jordan was sentenced to 15 years in prison, the feds have announced that 6ix9ine will testify against the two remaining members of the Nine Trey Bloods Gang. The upcoming trial is set to be the final step in the case against the Nine Trey Bloods Gang members.
Anthony “Harv” Ellison and Aljermiah “Nuke” Mack are the only members of the Nine Trey Bloods Gang yet to be convicted after the gang members were arrested in November last year. Harv is accused of Kidnapping 6ix9ine in July of last year (which he denied but text messages prove), while Nuke is charged with racketeering and narcotics trafficking.
The rainbow haired rapper is expected to take the stand against the two gang members in Manhattan federal court. This might happen sometime in September, depending on how long it takes to assemble the right jury. The rapper’s recent admission of domestic violence will reportedly not be brought up during the trial. Speaking on this, the presiding Judge, Judge Paul Engelmeyer said in court,
“It’s not relevant in this case, per the government’s decision not to prosecute, it is still something that may influence a jury.”
The Daily Beast reports that in court on Wednesday, prosecutors argued showing videos in court, along with Instagram conversations about the robbery between Mack and the fellow gang members. The judge ruled against the defense’s argument to show the videos in court saying it was ‘unnecessary’ for the jurors’ understanding of the case.
