Tekashi 6ix9ine has officially been freed from home confinement on Saturday.
6ix9ine has been on house arrest since he was let out of prison in April due to the coronavirus concerns. He was originally sentenced to 24 months in prison with five years supervised release last December after pleading guilty to racketeering conspiracy and eight other charges. He had previously spent 13 months in custody, and had faced 47 years after admitting to joining the Nine Trey Bloods gang to help his career, and contributing to them financially. He got his reduced sentence after deciding to cooperate with prosecutors. He outlined the inner workings of the gang in great detail during a trial last fall that sent many of the gang members to prison.
6ix9ine will be able to leave his house and work, but will still need to check in with a probation officer during his five years of supervised release. He also will need to seek permission to leave the state or country, and perform 300 hours of community service.
6ix9ine has rejected an offer to go into witness protection from his potential enemies, instead relying on expensive private security.
