Tekashi 6ix9ine’s bodyguard received his sentence for participating in crime that resulted in assault with a dangerous weapon in aid of racketeering and other gun charges.
Faheem “Crippy” Walter had previously plead guilty and on August 14th appeared in court for the sentence.
Walter received five years in prison as part of the racketeering case against almost a dozen members of the Nine Trey Gangster Bloods, including 6ix9ine.
Faheem “Crippy” Walter was also involved in a shooting that came just hours after Tekashi 6ix9ine appeared in court for violating the terms of his 2015 plea agreement over the sexual exploitation of a minor in a music video.
He was shot in the stomach by security for Philippe Chow during a fight inside of the restaurant on October 26, 2018. This incident has caused Walter to now wear a colostomy bag for the rest of his life.
The judge said if Walter can maintain a good behavior record while he is locked up, he could be out in as little as three years.
The judge also doubted that Walter would return to his violent ways.
“The image of an enforcer with a colostomy bag is not a familiar one,” said Judge Paul Engelmeyer
The sentencing is bad news for the rest of 6ix9ine crew, who are all facing dozens of years in prison for racketeering, drug dealing, and attempted murder around New York.
As for Tekashi 6ix9ine, he agreed to cooperate with authorities and snitched on his old crew in exchange for a lighter sentence.
According to reports, the rapper could be out in as little as a year.
