A guilty verdict has been decided for associates of Tekashi 6ix9ine in his kidnapping and racketeering case.
It’s been a little over a year since rapper 6ix9ine accused his former gang associates Anthony “Harv” Ellison and Aljermiah “Nuke” Mack of kidnapping him.
After taking the stand last week in a multi-day testimony, 6ix9ine whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, identified both Mack and Ellison as the men who took him.
On Thursday, the jury finally reached a decision in the case finding both men guilty of various charges. Ellison was found guilty of racketeering, conspiracy and assault with a dangerous weapon in aid of racketeering. Mack was found guilty of racketeering, conspiracy and narcotics trafficking.
As for the charges against Ellison for assault with a dangerous weapon in aid of racketeering, the jury was not able to reach a verdict and he was found not guilty.
When the kidnapping first took place, Hernandez initially testified that he lied about what happened. The rapper claimed that he didn’t want to stick to the story initially because he was embarrassed but did end up in the hospital after being pistol-whipped.
However, during court, video of the incident was shown to the jury and a picture of his then-girlfriend handing over money and jewelry to the kidnappers.
During the rapper’s testimony, he shared a lot of information about the Trey Nine Blood organization even including a few of his fellow rappers in the mix. That caused a major stir amongst the streets as many had negative comments about his snitching.
Safe to say that the rapper’s initial 47-year maximum prison sentence will be dropping significantly. As for Ellison and Mack, there has been no word on their sentencing date!
