Back in October, the Brooklyn rapper was sentenced to four years of probation and 1,000 hours community service after he filmed a 13-year-old girl in a sexual performance. The ruling was seen as a win for 6ix9ine—legal name Daniel Hernandez—as prosecutors were initially pushing for a one- to three-year prison sentence. But, as we would find out later, the controversial artist couldn't stay out of trouble.
Less than a month after 6ix9ine's sentencing, he and his affiliates were arrested on a slew of charges, including racketeering and weapons-related counts. He now faces up to life in prison and has remained behind bars.
On Wednesday, a New York judge dismissed the rapper's child sex case because his current incarceration wouldn't allow him to complete the terms of his probation. 6ix9ine's attorney, Lance Lazzaro, confirmed the news to TMZ.
The child sex case stems from an incident in which the DUMMY BOY rapper posted footage of an underaged girl performing a sex act. Though 6ix9ine pleaded guilty in the case, he has claimed that he was unaware of the girl's actual age at the time he shared the video.
"I was doing it for my image. When she came in, she asked me how old I was and I told her I was 18 and I assumed she was older. Like 19," he said, according to 2015 police documents. "The way she was asking made me think she was older."
