New York, NY - 

A judge has set a new sentencing date for Tekashi 6ix9ine. According to Complex, Judge Paul Englemayer has accepted a motion to bump up the original date and will determine the embattled rapper’s fate on December 18, 2019. The date had previously been set for January 24, 2020.

6ix9ine served as the government’s star witness last month in the case of alleged Nine Trey gang members Anthony “Harv” Ellison and Aljermiah “Nuke” Mack. As a result of his testimony, Ellison and Mack were both convicted of multiple felonies.

Ellison was found guilty of kidnapping in aid of racketeering as well as racketeering conspiracy and maiming and assault with a dangerous weapon in aid of racketeering, while Mack was found guilty of racketeering conspiracy and narcotics trafficking.

Ellison and Mack will be sentenced in February.

6ix9ine pleaded guilty to several crimes that carry a minimum of 47 years in prison. But due to his cooperation with the feds, it’s possible he could be out as early as the top of 2020. He’s been behind bars since his November 2018 arrest.
