The attorney of Tekashi 6ix9ine's former manager Kifano "Shotti" Jordan, has submitted a letter to the judge presiding over his case, asking that he be excused from representing him.

According to AllHipHop, Jeffrey Lichtman, former lawyer for El Chapo, is requesting to be freed from the case as he feels that Shotti stands zero chance of winning.

Last September, Shotti was sentenced to 15 years in prison during a hearing at the Thurgood Marshall Courthouse in New York.

Shotti pleaded guilty to one count of firearm possession during a crime and one count of firearm discharge during a crime. According to reports, Shotti was initially charged with six counts, including racketeering conspiracy, violent crimes in aid of racketeering, and firearms use. 

"I respectfully submit that the record from the district court contains no reversible errors. To the contrary, the record reveals that Mr. Jordan knowingly, voluntarily and intelligently pled guilty to the charges," Jeffrey Lichtman wrote to Judge Paul Engelmayer.

"Accordingly, I submit that there exists no non-frivolous issues on appeal. For these reasons, counsel should be permitted to withdraw," argued Lichtman.
