6ix9ine May Go to Prison as a Registered Sex Offender

Last month, the rapper named 6ix9ine was robbed and left for dead. He survived … but he may find himself wondering if that was really for the best.

See, 6ix9ine has gotten into trouble, which violates his probation following a plea deal that he made a few years ago.

And because that plea deal was over an incident involving a 13-year-old, he may have to register as a sex offender.

It may not surprise you to learn that 6ix9ine, a rapper whose look can best be described as “Pennywise’s estranged son,” may end up going to prison as a sex offender.

Back in 2015, 6ix9ine, who is also known as Tekashi69 and whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, pleaded guilty to “the use of a child in a sexual performance.”

If you think that it sounds bad, you’re right! 6ix9ine is currently 22 years old, and was already an adult at the time of his plea.

He himself had posted the videos in which he was partying with a 13-year-old girl.

The plea was supposed to allow him to weasel out of the whole ordeal … but it looks like he blew it.

6ix9ine’s guilty plea was part of a deal that included a stipulation that he not get into trouble again.

Well, since then, the rapper has gotten into trouble again.

Specifically, he’s in trouble for driving on a suspended license, assault, and assaulting a police officer.

That first charge about the license may sound nitpicky to some.

Assault on anyone — including a police officer — does not.

The plea deal would have prevented 6ix9ine from having a criminal record once the period of probation had ended.

Instead, at a hearing on Thursday, the Manhattan District Attorney’s office asked the court to revoke the plea deal on the grounds that 6ix9ine had not kept his part of the bargain.

If the deal is revoked, 6ix9ine will be sentenced to 1 to 3 years in prison.

He will also have to register as a sex offender.

In general, known sex offenders, particularly those who are identified as having preyed upon young children, have especially dangerous experiences while in prison.

That said, 6ix9ine could still get out of this. After all, he got away with the incident with the 13-year-old in the first place.

He has a new hearing on October 2.

The DA will argue that he should have a criminal record after this, despite the deal.

This is because prosecutors say that because his brand promotes a culture of violence and crime, and therefore violates the spirit of the law.

Honestly? While it seems clear that he probably violated the plea deal, arguing that a rapper’s lyrics preclude them from having a criminal record expunged is not the strongest legal case we’ve ever read.

So, being a rapper doesn’t mean that someone can’t be an upstanding citizen.

At the same time, however, looking at various celebrities who have used their fame and resources to weasel out of charges involving sexual predation and minors, many say that 6ix9ine should have a record.

Any parent considering allowing their minor child to attend a 6ix9ine event should Google him, see his criminal history, and then say “no.”

A rapper can be an upstanding citizen.

But based upon his guilty plea from a few years ago, 6ix9ine just might be dangerous around minors.

Some of his fans are terrified that he will end up behind bars, but it’s hard to feel sympathy for the guy.

Ryan Edwards to Serve 3 YEARS In Prison?!

Earlier this week, we reported on the news that Ryan Edwards was arrested for the second time in less than six months.

The troubled Teen Mom 2 star is currently behind bars awaiting trial for heroin possession and a probation violation, and legal experts say it’s unlikely that he’ll walk away with another slap on the wrist.

For one thing, the judge isn’t taking any chances that by allowing Ryan another opportunity to mess up.

His trial isn’t until August 6, but Edwards will remain in jail until then, having been denied bail at his arraignment.

As for what awaits him in court — well Ryan has squandered multiple “second chances” in the past, so he should probably prepare himself for the worst this time around.

“It really depends on the case, as far as whether somebody would be going to jail or to rehab after getting busted for heroin possession,” Nashville-based criminal defense attorney Ben Raybin tells Hollywood Life.

“Usually in this state we do try to send people to treatment for when they’re found with drugs, but a lot of times once they’ve given them multiple chances, like in this case where Ryan is violating probation, then at that point sometimes the judge says enough is enough and says they are going to jail and at that point they can put all the offender’s sentences into effect.”

Yes, it seems that Edwards — who recently got fired from Teen Mom 2 along with his wife, Mackenzie Standifer — will almost certainly spend at least a few months locked up.

And the situation could wind up being far worse than that:

“In Ryan’s case I can tell you he is facing up to 11 months and 29 days in jail just on this most recent charge of simple heroin possession,” Raybin says.

“But that’s not all because he has a prior suspended sentence as well as probation that the judge could choose to add to his sentence,”

“To break it down, Ryan has the 6 months of probation he was sentenced to (in March 2018) as well as a suspended sentence of 11 months and 29 days stemming back to his very first arrest.”

It’s a lot of legal mumbo-jumbo that adds up to one thing — Ryan has demonstrated time and again that he’s incapable of remaining sober, which means, the state will likely keep him under lock and key in one way or another:

“They could potentially put those things together with the year he is facing on this most recent arrest,” says Raybin.

“Worst case scenario he could actually be looking at 2 1/2 years in jail.”

Raybin adds that he believes it’s “unlikely” that Edwards will received the maximum sentence, but it’s certainly not unheard of.

Edwards wife, Mackenzie Standifer is pregnant with his child and set to give birth in October.

Sadly, it’s looking more and more likely that Ryan will not be on hand for the occasion.

We’ll have further updates on this developing story as more information becomes available.
