It’s almost time for Tekashi 69 to take a stand in case of extortion from “their” former employees of Nine Gangster Bloods of Trey. According to the complex, Tekashi and the prosecution made a breakthrough in court today when the judge ruled that the defense could not “pass” its previous conviction for sexual crimes or charges of abuse of her by a former employee. Judge Paul Engelmeyer ruled that the defence could only mention that 69 people had previously been convicted of a crime, but could not provide details of the case, nor could it bring the latest charges of alleged rapper abuse by “its” former friend Sarah Molina. In this case, the defence wanted to use Tekashi’s later reports in the sex case to question the veracity of his testimony, since he had “lied” about the case several times in the media. Prosecutor Jeffrey Berman argued that mentioning this case could unfairly affect the jury against his possible testimony against Trey Nové. Tekashi was convicted of using a minor in sexual behavior in 2015 after he published a candid video in Instagram about two men having sex with a 13-year-old girl. Tekashi negotiated a deal to testify against them in exchange for a reduced sentence for his own extortion and other violent crimes. The trial will be held on September 16 after the final preliminary hearing on September 10.
