6ix9ine won’t be coming home early and will remain behind bars. On Tuesday, Judge Paul Engelmayer denied the rap star’s request to serve out the remainder of his 24-month prison sentence in home confinement or, barring that, at a community correctional facility. 6ix9ine, whose government name is Daniel Hernandez, has been in prison since November 2018.
According to TMZ, Tekashi requested home confinement out of fear for his safety. He is concerned that he may be harmed by members of the Bloods, the same gang he testified against in order to receive a reduced sentence.
Hernandez is currently being held at a private jail instead of a federal prison for security reasons. However, his attorney Lance Lazzaro claimed in a recent filing that “even at the private jail, Hernandez is still housed with various members of the Bloods.”
