New York attorney Moe Gangat, made a bold prediction via an Instagram video post, when he stated Tekashi 6ix9ine jail sentence could result in a Wednesday December 18 release from jail.
How soon? According to Moe Gangat he expects Tekashi 69 to be released on December 18, the same day of his sentencing. Or lack of for that matter. “The way federal sentencing works is the government tells the judge what sentence the person should get. Here, the government hasn’t asked for any sentence. When the government doesn’t ask for a sentence, what they’re saying is time served, no sentence,” explains Moe Gangat.
So with that being said, Gangat is expecting Tekashi 69 to get out of jail this week. “Look for Tekashi to get out this Wednesday, December 18 with a sentence of time served,” says Gangat in his video post. “When it’s all said and done, he’s likely to have served just under one year in federal prison.”
Many are not buying it, but according to Gangat there i no reason the Judge will give anything but time served to Tekashi. “In the Southern District of New York, judges almost always go with the recommendation of the probation department, especially when the probation department and the defense attorneys are both recommending the same thing,” Gangat explained. “Here, the probation department and 6ix9ine’s defense lawyers both say time served. There’s absolutely no reason the judge will give anything other than time served.”
Could Tekashi 6ix9ine face 37 years in prison?
Although The Blast is reporting that Tekashi could be facing at least 37 years, Gangat still stand by what he said. Prosecutors are aiming for Tekashi to be sentenced to at least 37 years in prison.
In a follow up video, attorney Moe Gangat explains why he feels time served will be Tekashi 6ix9ine’s sentence outcome. “On the one side is the government and they’re there to prosecute crimes. On the other side is the defense attorney who’s there to defend the accused of crimes. The judge is supposed to act as a neutral arbitrator to figure out who has the better argument, then make a decision. In this case, the government is not asking for a sentence.”
“The probation department, also part of the government, is recommending time served. The defense attorneys are also recommending time served. So it would take something really extreme, really something unprecedented to give anything other than time served.”
News of Tekashi possibly being released this Wednesday December 18 has rapidly created headlines all over various media outlets. Something that ironically could hurt Tekashi says Gangat in a new video released Sunday December 15. Captioning the video with, “If you read the headlines, it’s over. The judge reading the headlines might say, Hold Up.”
