Judge Who Sentenced Tekashi69 to Probation Regrets Not Sending Him to Jail

*When Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Felicia Mennin learned of Tekashi 6ix9ine’s near-fatal video shoot with Kanye West and Nicki Minaj, she noted her regret for not sentencing him to jail.

According to TMZ, Judge Mennin feels her decision to sentence the rapper to probation instead of prison may have been a mistake, but she’s pushed the blame to the presiding judge, prosecutors and defense attorneys for cutting the original plea deal.

The webloid writes: “Tekashi violated the terms of his plea deal in his child sex case twice by getting arrested for alleged assaults in Houston and Brooklyn, so he could have been sent to prison for years, but the judge didn’t give him a single day.”

Prosecutors wanted to send 69 to prison for 1 to 3 years – but the judge favored 4 years probation and even downplayed his arrest in Houston — which she said may have involved “push back against an amateur paparazzi.”

But now, Judge Mennin, through her spokesperson, Lucian Chalfen, tells TMZ…”Although Judge Mennin was the sentencing judge, the long-standing plea agreement was agreed to by the presiding judge at the time, and the other parties involved.”                                         

Hours after the sentence, a member of Tekashi’s crew got shot after an altercation at an NYC restaurant.

And last week, Tekashi and his posse had a heated confrontation with Slim 400 and his crew in LA.

As we previously reported, last Friday, 8 shots were fired during a Tekashi/Kanye/Nicki Minaj video shoot at a Beverly Hills mansion.

There are rumors and whispers that Trump-loving Kanye was the intended target.
