Tekashi 6ix9ine has pled not guilty to the racketeering and firearms charges levelled against him.
The New York rapper, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, was arrested by federal police earlier this month and was accused of being a part of violent gang Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods.
Tekashi 6ix9ine has now pled not guilty to the charges he faces, which could see him face up to life in prison. A pre-trial conference has been scheduled for January 22, 2019, while the trial itself will not start until September 4, 2019.
6ix9ine’s co-defendants have also pled not guilty. All will remain in custody at this time. The indictment against them includes allegations of murder, robbery, assault, drug dealing, and more.
He is currently on probation for a sex crime case involving a child in 2015. It has been reported his plea deal in the assault case does not violate the conditions of his probation.
