Tekashi 6ix9ine: First Defendant Sentenced To 5 Years In Racketeering Case
After multiple arrests and indictments, the first defendant in the Tekashi 6ix9ine racketeering case is set to be sentenced to 5 years in prison.
On Thursday morning (July 18), Judge Paul Engelmayer sentenced Nine Trey Gangsta Blood member Jensel “Ish” Butler, 37, to 60 months after he admitted to his role (as a driver) in the April 3, 2018 armed robbery in the building of ThisIs50.
In addition to 6ix9ine reportedly filming the incident from the backseat of a nearby car, authorities ended up seizing the stolen items in an apartment he was renting.
During the trial, Butler reportedly began crying, stating, “I knew my actions and being around the people I was around could cause harm to people, and I deeply apologize. When I serve my time, I am going to make a difference in their lives. I apologize for everything.”
