Judge A. Engelmayer explained that the 23-year-old’s charges were “too violent” to be excused after serving 13 months in jail.

“Mr. Hernandez, if you expected to be released today, you will be disappointed. But you were wise to cooperate. Your cooperation will result in years more liberty,” Judge Engelmayer informed the rapper according to Inner City Press, who was reporting from inside the  courtroom. “The worst part is over. There is a great deal to be admired about you. You’ve learned a hard lesson here. I wish you very, very well.”

Prior to his sentencing, 6ix9ine penned a letter to the judge vowing to change his behavior in the future. “There is no excuse, no justification and no apology good enough in this world to explain my crimes,” he wrote. “While I have been incarcerated, I have had time to reflect on the recklessness and foolishness of my decisions. I wake up every morning asking myself was it worth it?”

He continued, “I realize that I placed myself in this position with the choices that I made. I know that I am not a victim because my actions contributed to this mess. I’m sorry to the victims who were affected by my actions, to my fans who look up to me and were misled, to my family who depends on me and to this courtroom for this mess that I contributed to.”
