In SDNY Tekashi 6ix9ine Case Ellison To April Fools Day After Feb 12 Fuguan Lovick

BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - The Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Feb 11 – Daniel Hernandez a/k/a Tekashi 6ix9ine was sentenced to 24 months of total imprisonment on December 18 in a proceeding live tweeted by Inner City Press before U.S. District Court Judge Paul A. Engelmayer.

 On February 11 Judge Engelmayer gave trial convictee Anthony "Harv" Ellison an extension for sentencing to April 1, but not without snarking at his counsel's request: "Reschedule Sentencing as to Anthony Ellison... ENDORSEMENT ....The Court GRANTS this request but notes that, contrary to counsel's representation that counsel" are just now in receipt" of the pre-sentence report, the presentence report was filed one week ago, on February 5, 2020. To accommodate the Court's trial schedule, sentencing is adjourned to April 1, 2020." We'll have more on this.

  Now on February 12 one of his initial co-defendants Fuguan Lovick a/k/a Fu Banga is set to be sentenced by Judge Engelmayer in a proceeding that Inner City Press aims to at least partially live tweet. The government is asking for a sentence of from 90 to 96 months in jail, 84 of them for pleading guilty to shooting a gun at the Barclay's Center in downtown Brooklyn. AUSA Michael Longyear has written to Judge Engelmayer: "On April 21, 2018, the defendant was present with other Nine Trey members when he shot above the heads of rival gang members inside the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. The defendant arrived with Daniel Hernandez, a/k/a “Tekashi 6ix 9ine,” Martin, Kifano Jordan, a/k/a “Shotti,” Denard Butler, a/k/a “Drama,” Jesnel Butler, a/k/a “Ish,” and Faheem Walter, a/k/a “Crippy,” among others. Hernandez was scheduled to sing the entrance song for a boxer who had a match that night. While in a hallway in the Barclays Center, the defendant and other Nine Trey members encountered the entourage of a rival rapper, who was a member of a different Bloods set. During the altercation, Lovick removed a gun he had hidden in his show and fired the gun in the air over the rival gang members’ heads. Afterwards, the rival rapper ran towards the defendant and other Nine Trey members, and Lovick can be seen on the surveillance video holding up the Nine Trey hand sign." Watch this site.

Inner City Press covered the trial Hernandez testified at, and the other sentencings in the case and will continue to. The case is US v. Jones, 18-cr-834 (Engelmayer). More on Patreon here.
