Reports in the days leading up to February 1 noted that three new people were going to be charged in the case against 6ix9ine and company. But when a new superseding indictment came out with up-to-date charges and the new defendants, one very prominent name was missing. And just past noon on February 1, we found out why.
6ix9ine had, back on January 23, plead guilty to a new nine-count indictment. The judge unsealed the plea on February 1.
In the new indictment, 6ix9ine admits that he was a "member" or "associate" of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods, which the indictment calls a "criminal organization." According to the indictment, 6ix9ine "participated in unlawful...activity in furtherance of the conduct of the Enterprise's affairs."
As far as specifics, 6ix9ine cops to shooting at a "rival gang member" in Times Square on March 20, 2018; robbing "rivals of Nine Trey" on April 3, 2018, again in Midtown Manhattan (cops found evidence linking 6ix9ine to this robbery at the rapper's apartment); and "aid[ing] and abet[ting] the shooting of rivals of Nine Trey" at a hotel in Times Square on June 2, 2018—this last one is a likely reference to the Chief Keef shooting. He also admits to some drug charges ("distribute and possess with intent to distribute controlled substances"—heroin specifically) and firearms charges, the latter mostly to do with the robberies and shootings mentioned above. He will also have to forfeit any money "traceable to the commission of said offenses."
The rapper is, according to the government, "cooperating against multiple violent people" in Nine Trey.
