Platinum-selling rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine, aka Daniel Hernandez, could face a life sentence in prison from criminal charges filed against him in federal court Nov. 19. The rapper was indicted on six counts including conspiracy, racketeering, and assault with a dangerous weapon.

According to an E! eyewitness, the 22-year-old rapper was shackled in court, where two of the charges filed against him carry a maximum life sentence. At minimum , Tekashi faces 32 years in prison.

Court documents obtained by Empire BBK, show that Tekashi , along with Shottie ( Tekashi’s recently fired manager), Crippy, Ish, and others that are part of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods gang "committed and agreed, attempted, and threatened to commit acts of violence to protect and expand their narcotics business."

The court documents allege that the Nine Trey gang had been dealing drugs, which included fentanyl, MDMA, marijuana, and heroin throughout Manhattan, Brooklyn and the Bronz. The court documents also detail the acts of violence that the rapper and his gang were involved in such as murder, robbery, extortion, and assault.

According to an E! eyewitness, the judge in the case referred to evidence of violence including a gunpoint robbery in April and an AR-15 found in a home raid in September.

Angel M. Melendez, special agent in charge of HSI New York said in a statement, “Members of Nine Trey, notorious for wielding firearms and pushing highly addictive drugs onto New York City streets, allegedly showed an unprecedented level of violence this year and for that they are now facing multiple charges, including an incident in which an innocent bystander was shot.

“This criminal enterprise has no business in our city, and we will continue to work with our partners to ensure that Nine Trey crew members, including the more well-known 'Tekashi 6ix 9ine', are in a place where they cannot inflict further violence on our communities.”

During the hearing, prosecutors argued that Tekashi was a flight risk, which his lawyers countered by giving up his passport, requested he be put on house arrest, and that he pay $750,000 to the court, according to E! Despite the concessions, Tekashi was denied bail until his trial because of the possibility of committing a crime while released, the news outlet said.

The investigation of the Tekashi and the Trey Nine gang was conducted by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations New York, New York City Police Department, and the New York Field Division of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.

Tekashi’s case is pending in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.
