TSR Updatez: The first sentence in Tekashi 69’s racketeering case has been issued. His ex manager, Kifano “Shotti” Jordan, was sentenced to 15 years in prison today.
Shotti learned his fate Friday afternoon when he appeared in front of Judge Engelmayer in a Manhattan courtroom, according to the U.S. Attorney’s office in the southern district of New York.
Shotti pleaded guilty to firearm offenses in connection to a robbery and a non-fatal shooting carried out as part of his participation in the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods, the office said. Shotti is the first of several members in the gang to be sentenced before Tekashi gets his day in court.
Just for a quick refresher, both Tekashi and Shotti were arrested by the feds on racketeering charges back in November. The feds believed Shotti and Tekashi pulled off an armed robbery back in April 2018.
The feds alleged that the pair robbed Tekashi’s rivals at gunpoint. With Shotti though, he was also accused of firing two shots at one of Tekashi’s rivals on the same night one of Tekashi’s crew members fired his gun inside the Barclays Center.
There is speculation that Tekashi won’t do much time at all, though. He copped to the nine counts against him, including racketeering, conspiracy, a firearms offense and narcotics trafficking charges for a deal.
As part of his plea deal, Tekashi has agreed to be a cooperating witness for the feds and give them information against his associates.
Tekashi has some time before he’ll be sentenced and it’s believed that his attorneys will be asking for time served for the time he’s been sitting in jail awaiting trial.
We’ll keep you posted on Tekashi and any other updates in this RICO case, Roommates.
