Tekashi 6ix9ine Kidnapper Wants To Swap Jail For Home Confinement

Tekashi 6ix9ine‘s kidnapper is asking to be let out of jail and into home confinement because he has asthma and is especially at risk during the coronavirus pandemic, according to a letter filed in court.

Anthony “Harv” Ellison, a reputed member of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods and former bodyguard for Tekashi, was convicted in October of kidnapping the rainbow-haired Brooklyn rapper in July 2018.

Lawyers for Ellison — who is in jail awaiting sentencing in the case in which he was also found guilty of racketeering conspiracy — are asking a judge to release him from the Metropolitan Correctional Center on $200,000 bail and home confinement, according to a Manhattan Federal court filing.

Ellison has asthma and “given the outbreak of COVID-19 at the Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC), Anthony’s health and welfare is in great peril,” his lawyers wrote to Judge Paul Engelmayer.

Ellison — who is set to be sentenced on June 19 — hasn’t been able to adequately social distance or sanitize during the health crisis.

For instance, inmates are not able to maintain 6 feet of distance from each other — plus inmates all share bunks, sinks, toilets and showers with other inmates, the letter says.

Ellison’s unit has received an inadequate amount of soap for showers and clothes-washing and inmates have not been allowed to buy extra, the letter says.

Ellison also hasn’t been able to see his lawyer for over a month — all while he’s supposed to be preparing for sentencing — which his lawyer says violates his constitutional rights.

Tekashi — given name Daniel Hernandez — was arrested for racketeering in 2018, but he cut a plea deal and became a government cooperator before spending three days testifying against his former Bloods pals.

The “Gummo” rapper testified at the time that he was beaten and robbed of his expensive jewelry, including a $95,000 diamond-encrusted My Little Pony chain, before he was dropped off in rival gang territory.
