As first reported by Vulture, Jordan pleaded guilty Thursday to a pair of federal weapons counts. 6ix9ine previously pleaded guilty to multiple federal charges back in February, nine counts total, and is said to be cooperating with federal investigators as the case moves forward.
Jordan, meanwhile, has now confessed to the possession of a firearm "in furtherance of a crime of violence," as well as the discharging of a firearm with the same intent. Both charges stem from separate incidents circa April 2018. Both charges carry potential max sentences of life, with mandatory minimums of five years and 10 years, respectively.
"This conduct is simply intolerable," U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman said of Jordan's guilty plea in Manhattan federal court Thursday. "We continue our daily work with our law enforcement partners to keep our communities safe and to vigorously investigate and prosecute those who bring violence to our streets."
A separate state case centered on Jordan's alleged involvement in an incident at Philippe's in 2018 remains ongoing.
Earlier this month, 6ix9ine's legal team bagged a small victory in the form of lawyer Lance Lazzaro being allowed to rejoin the defense. As you'll recall, Lazzaro was previously removed from the case when conflict of interest concerns were raised in connection with his previous representation of Jordan and Faheem "Crippy" Walter.
Though currently behind bars, 6ix9ine did manage an appearance on Pornhub's 2019 Valentine's Day compilation last month alongside Blac Chyna and Lil Xan.
