Tekashi 6ix9ine was finally able to show his tattooed face to the world again after being released from prison early. 6ix9ine lucked out with the premature release. Since then, he’s been called a jailhouse snitch. The COVID-19 pandemic was just beginning and prisons were releasing people left and right.

Tekashi was supposed to be released in August of 2020. Rather than being thankful that his chronic asthma saved him from additional prison time, 6ix9ine is now asking for more.

Judge Paul Engelmayer was petitioned by 6ix9ine with a request to end his supervised release early. The program is essentially the same as probation or parole. Tekashi has to check in and follow certain conditions, such as not breaking the law. The judge’s decision was not what Tekashi wanted to hear, according to a report by Complex.

“Although the Court is hopeful that Mr. Hernandez’s choice since his release to abide by the law reflects a durably matured internal compass, the Court today cannot be fully confident that, freed of judicial supervision, he would not lapse.”

Tekashi 6ix9ine was involved in some serious criminal behavior. The judge doesn’t think shortening his leash would be a good idea. The court believes he is still a danger to society as a fully free man.

The legal team representing 6ix9ine said they were disappointed by the decision. They truly believed that there was a good chance of the supervised release ending early. The judge wasn’t so sure about that. Tekashi will now remain on supervised release.
