A judge presiding over the Tekashi 6ix9ine racketeering case has sentenced his ex-bodyguard despite having to wear a colostomy bag.
A lot of Tekashi 6ix9ine‘s friends and associates have been caught up with charges leveled against them in his racketeering case. The rapper who at one time plead not guilty to the charges is now reportedly cooperating with the authorities, and snitching on his former crew in exchange for a much lighter sentence. Reports say that the rapper might only have to be in prison for as little as a year.
That might be good news of Tekashi who’s caught in the middle of all the legal ruckus but not so good for the members of his former crew who he continues to rat out. Reports state that they are all facing a dozens of years on prison for racketeering, drug dealing, and attempted murder around New York. At some point, Tekashi explained some of the lyrics of his songs to prosecutors in testimony against his crew members.
Tekashi’s ex bodyguard, Faheed “Crippy” Walter is particularly not having the time of his life in court. The former tough guy was shot in the stomach by security for Philippe Chow during a fight in 2018. Now, he has to wear a colostomy bag around. The former bodyguard was sentenced to 5 years in prison by Judge Paul Engelmeyer in a ‘fair’ sentencing after pleading guilty to assault with a dangerous weapon in aid of racketeering and other gun charges in April.
A colostomy bag, also called a stoma bag or ostomy bag, is a small, waterproof pouch used to collect waste from the body. During a surgical procedure known as a colostomy, an opening, called a stoma or ostomy, is formed between the large intestine (colon) and the abdominal wall.
Referring to Crippy, the judge said;
“You have paid dearly physically for running with a violent crowd. You as well as anyone else understand the risks associated with gun violence.”
The prosecutors had sought for 74 month sentence but the judge thought his current condition was punishment enough.
