New York, NY – Another Tekashi 6ix9ine co-defendant has pleaded guilty in the racketeering case. In court documents obtained by Complex, Jensel “Ish” Butler entered the plea on Tuesday (April 2) and copped to one firearms offense linked to an April 2018 robbery in Midtown Manhattan.
6ix9ine and ex-manager Kifano “Shotti” Jordan have already confessed to their involvement.
The controversial rapper’s former friend Scum Lord D!zzy — the founder of Scum Gang — was robbed of his backpack. The latest indictment says Butler, 6ix9ine, Shotti, Roland “Ro Murda” Martin, Denard “Drama” Butler and Faheem “Crippy” Walter were also involved.
The backpack was later found during a raid by authorities at a Brooklyn apartment 6ix9ine was renting in September 2018.
Butler admitted to “knowingly did use and carry firearms, and in furtherance of such crime did possess firearms, and did aid and abet the use, carrying, and possession of firearms, some of which were brandished.”
6ix9ine has been behind bars since last November. He was originally facing up to life in prison but because he’s been cooperating with feds, he’s likely going to strike a plea deal and receive a much lighter sentence. He’s already pleaded guilty to nine federal counts stemming from his involvement with the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods.
Butler’s sentencing is scheduled for July 18.
