Crimes Videotaped By Tekashi69
Although, Walter the 29-year-old has a long list of crimes that just do not seem to end. He was involved in a robbery where items taken during that robbery were found at Tekashi69’s apartment last fall. In addition, the robbery itself was videotaped by 6ix9ine himself, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez.
However, In April he pleaded guilty of assault with dangerous weapons in aid of racketeering and carrying a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence.
Not only that, but he took part in multiple violent gangs related fights alongside 6ix9ine. This includes his participation in April 2018 at the Barclays Center. He was then caught in a dispute with 6ix9ine’s music managers outside a Lenox Hill restaurant in October 2018.
Shot By A Bullet
Moreover, He suffered substantially since the bullet ripped through his intestine. This has led to him wearing a colostomy bag the man must wear for the rest of his life.
Defense attorney Edward Sapone, really played on this aspect of the fight, saying his client has suffered enough. Walter had to recover from such a traumatic incident and even had to change his colostomy bag behind bars.
He Has Suffered Enough
Walter took this opportunity to apologize to victims for his wrongdoing and his co-worker’s wrongdoings. He ended by saying he wishes he had never met 6ix9ine. He said it was on 6ix9ine’s saying that he participated in the crimes.
In the end, it was 6ix9ine who ratted him out. Judge Paul Engelmeyer, that the former bodyguard deserves a reduced sentence. His original sentence would have been from 68 up to 74 months but was reduced by the judge to 62 months.
“You have paid dearly for physically for running with a violent crowd,” Judge Paul Engelmeyer told Faheem Walter. He justified his decision by saying now Walter has experienced the risks associated with gun violence that he will not do it ever again.
As for Tekashi 6ix9ine, he agreed to cooperate with authorities and snitched on his old crew in exchange for a lighter sentence.
