Aljermiah "Nuke" Mack, one of the defendants implicated by Tekashi 6ix9ine during his trial, has been sentenced to 17 years in prison by a judge.

While delivering the sentence, Judge Paul Engelmayer told Mack that he had done "nothing to accept responsibility" for his leadership role in the violent Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods.

Mack was convicted in October of racketeering and narcotics trafficking following his trial. Tekashi 6ix9ine's testimony helped the feds nail him. He was convicted despite the touching letter rapper Cam'Ron submitted to the judge on his behalf.

"I have had the pleasure of knowing Mr. Mack for the past ten years," Cam's letter reads. "Mr. Mack is a good person and has always had morality in his actions. This is why I can assure you that although he has had recent challenges, he is a decent person with a good heart," Cam writes.

The Dipset rapper continued, "I am sure that as long as Mr. Mack receives the support from people around him, he can be quickly rehabilitated. I believe in him and will lend support which will enable him to become an upstanding part of our community," before the letter concludes -- "Thank you for your time and I hope that your decision will lend Mr. Mack the opportunity to repair the actions he may have caused."

Mack was facing up to 17 years in prison for his crimes.
