As Tekashi 6ix9ine continues to sit behind the bars of a New York jail, one of his cases has reportedly been dismissed.
According to reports, The State of Texas formally requested 6ix9ine’s 2018 Houston assault case be thrown out and subsequently, a judge signed off on it.
The alleged victim, Santigo Albarran, claims the rapper mastermind attacked him at the Galleria Mall last year. However, Albarran dropped the charges in October 2018. At the court hearing, Albarran and 6ix9ine posed for a photograph, making it clear the incident was water under the bridge.
But there’s another reason a judge decided to dismiss the case. Due to 6ix9ine’s pending racketeering case, prosecutors believe transferring the controversial rapper to Texas is a “security risk,” especially since he became the government’s star witness during the trial.
6ix9ine is expected to be sentenced on December 18. Due to his cooperation, it’s possible he won’t receive any additional jail time.
Tekashi 6ix9ine was all smiles leaving a Houston courthouse. Santiago Albarran, the 16-year-old who accused 6ix9ine of attacking him at the Galleria Mall, showed up at court to essentially drop the pending assault charges.
During the proceedings, Albarran reportedly made it clear he didn’t want to prosecute the polarizing rapper. Albarran told 6ix9ine’s attorney, Carl Moore, he wasn’t interested in going through with the charges and let prosecutors know that as well.
