Controversial rapper 6ix9ine has been sentenced to four years probation for his 2015 arrest for the use of a child in a sexual performance. The charges mean the rapper, born Daniel Hernandez, avoids prison, and is instead required to do 1,000 hours of community service. Hernandez is also not allowed to affiliate with gangs or post sexually explicit or violent images of women or children online.

6ix9ine was first arrested in March 2015, after footage emerged of the rapper engaging in sexual acts with a 13-year-old girl. He pleaded guilty to the charge, with a plea agreement that required him to get his GED and not commit any crimes until his sentencing date, which was initially set for October 2017. However, the sentencing date was delayed a total of 19 times as the rapper failed to get the GED.

During that period, Hernandez was arrested for attacking a minor, assaulting a police officer, and driving with a suspended license, and back in August the Manhattan District Attorney’s office recommended a 1-3 year prison sentence for the rapper.

However, yesterday Judge Felicia A. Mennin argued that Hernandez's sentence should be reduced to probation on account of the rapper's "genuine remorse" and "acts of unsolicited generosity," which include providing food for homeless people in Chicago and meeting a young fan suffering from cancer.
