We all knew it was coming, but prosecutors have now asked a judge to hand Tekashi 6ix9ine a lighter sentence after his thorough cooperation with the feds, which led to several arrests and convictions of Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods members.

According to court documents obtained by XXL, federal prosecutors are asking a judge to take 6ix9ine's cooperation into account when they sentence him for his federal charges on Dec. 18. The documents state that 6ix9ine provided "substantial assistance" in their investigations, and due to his assistance, prosecutors say 6ix9ine should be sentenced in light of "18 U.S.C. § 3553(e) and the factors set forth in Section 5K1.1(a)(1)–(5) of the Guidelines" and given a lenient sentence.

This should be of no surprise to anyone. Tekashi could be out in just a few weeks if his lenient sentence is granted, but it is also reported that the rapper has turned down the feds'offer of witness protection once he leaves prison.
