Page Six reports Denard Butler has pleaded guilty to a racketeering charge, just a day after Kintea "Kooda B" McKenzie pleaded guilty to assault with a dangerous weapon in aid of racketeering. The move makes Butler the ninth co-defendant in the case to enter a plea deal. The only suspects who have yet to do so are Roland Martin, an alleged member of the Nine Trey Gangster Bloods; and Anthony "Harv" Ellison, a former associate of 6ix9ine who is accused of kidnapping and robbing the rapper last July. Court documents obtained by Complex state that Butler is looking at 77 to 96 months plus a fine of anywhere from $15,000 to $150,000. Butler's exact sentence will be determined by the judge this fall.
6ix9ine pleaded guilty to nine criminal charges that stemmed from a 2018 indictment against him, his ex-manager Kifano "Shotti" Jordan, and other alleged members of the Nine Trey Blood Gang. Among the charges to which 6ix9ine pleaded guilty to were racketeering, assault, firearms offenses, and one drug trafficking charge.
The 23-year-old rapper, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, is scheduled to be sentenced in January 2020; though it's believed he will receive a reduced sentence for cooperating with authorities. His unsealed plea deal states that in exchange for his cooperation, prosecutors agree "not to prosecute the defendant for the crimes set forth in Counts One through Nine of the Superseding Information as well as additional crimes that the defendant has told the government about [...] should the defendant successfully cooperate, the government agrees that it will file at the time of sentencing a motion…for a sentence below any mandatory minimum."
