Tekashi 6ix9ine’s Ex manager Kifano “Shotti Tr3way” Jordan has been sentenced to 15 years in prison after previously pleading guilty to one count of firearm possession during a crime and one count of firearm discharge during a crime, Sentencing was passed by the Southern District of New York.
The charges stemmed from two separate incidents from April 2018. The first incident, took place on April 3, in which Jordan, 6ix9ine, and other associates rob a rival gang member and rapper while Jordan had a pistol. The second incident took place in the afternoon of April 21, during which an individual approached Jordan, Hernandez, and other associates at a restaurant and shouted a derogatory comment at them. Jordan, 6ix9ine, and the others got into their car and drove away. When the individual and one other person followed them, Jordan got out of his vehicle and fired two shots at their car.
Judge Paul Engelmayer called the sentence “richly warranted” during the Friday hearing.
“Your crime was deadly,” he said to Jordan, and then read out a litany of violent incidents Jordan played a part in: a November 2017 assault on Trippie Redd; the Barclays Center shooting; the Scumlord D!zzy robbery, the June 2018 Chief Keef shooting, the fight inside Phillipe Chow, and more. “This conduct demands a long sentence,” the judge continued. While Jordan had been involved in several shooting incidents, Engelmayer said, “Through some combination of sheer luck and bad aim, no one died.”
In addition to the 15 years in prison, Jordan also received five years of supervised release. His lawyer, Jeffrey Lichtman, was pleased with the outcome.
“It ended making the best of a bad situation,” he told Complex after the hearing. The attorney went on to praise his client. “He’s very different from what I’m used to in this area of defense that I’ve been in,“ Lichtman said. “I represent a lot of people similarly situated to Shotti, and I can tell you that he’s very kind, very thoughtful, very intelligent. He was very sensitive and very caring. He frankly was a pleasure to represent, and I say that sincerely.”
The lawyer also had some thoughts about 6ix9ine, who is all but certain to testify in the upcoming trial of accused Nine Trey members Anthony “Harv” Ellison and Aljermiah “Nuke” Mack.
“He decided to cooperate. I don’t walk in another man’s shoes, so I can’t criticize the man for immediately cooperating when given the opportunity. He obviously didn’t want to spend any more time in jail, and the way to get out of that is two choices: you can go to trial and get acquitted, or you can cooperate against your friends. And that’s ultimately what he decided to do. I can’t criticize him for that, because cooperators are an important part of the system as well, in order to solve crimes and and help society. I wish him luck.”
