Tekashi69 Pleads Not Guilty

Tekashi69 received his trial date on Monday morning, after he entered a plea of not guilty in his federal racketeering case. The rapper, who has been incarcerated since his arrest on November 18th, was notified that his trial date has been set for September 4th. The issue of bail was not addressed at the hearing, so as of now, Tekashi will remain behind bars until that date. His attorney, Lance Lazzaro, did offer to pay $750k, surrender the rapper’s passport and have him remain on house arrest, but it was all denied. The 22-year-old has 6 charges against him and could face anywhere from 25 years to life in prison.
