A Manhattan federal judge ruled Monday that he won’t let Tekashi 6ix9ine’s kidnapper out of prison amid the coronavirus outbreak.
Attorneys for Anthony “Harv” Ellison had asked Judge Paul Engelmayer to release their client from the Metropolitan Correctional Center on $200,000 bail into home confinement due to his asthma.
“The court, based on the trial record and Ellison’s criminal history, regards him as ‘far too great a danger to the community to justify his release,’” wrote Engelmayer, siding with federal prosecutors who had opposed Ellison’s bail application.
Ellison, 32, a high-ranking member of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods, was convicted last year of the gunpoint kidnapping and robbery of Tekashi and the ear-to-chin slashing of a rival a few months later. He’s scheduled to be sentenced June 19 and faces up to life in prison.
