Tekashi 6ix9ine plea dealUPDATED: 2019/02/17 1:00PM

Tekashi 6ix9ine was facing a minimum of 47 years and a maximum of life in prison after being charged with nine federal counts that included firearms offenses, narcotics trafficking, racketeering, and conspiracy, but under the terms of his recent guilty plea, he could get out of jail as early as 2020

According to a newly unsealed plea deal, because the rapper gave complete cooperation, the US Attorney’s Office has agreed “not to prosecute the defendant for the crimes set forth in Counts One through Nine.” They have also agreed that “should the defendant successfully cooperate, the government…will file at the time of sentencing a motion…for a sentence below the mandatory minimum.”

A federal judge will determine his sentencing during a hearing scheduled for January 2020. He will also be eligible for witness protection.
