Judge Felicia Mennin feels she may have made the wrong decision in granting Tekashi probation.
After learning of Tekashi 6ix9ine's disaster-ridden video shoot with Kanye West and Nicki Minaj, Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Felicia Mennin regrets not throwing him in the slammer. Mennin sentenced Tekashi to a more lenient probationary clause, likely convinced he would turn things around in the midterm. 6ix9ine could have been dealt a 4-year bid after breaking the plea deal to his statutory rape case twice, once in Houston, the other in Brooklyn at the Barclays Center. A rep for Mennin commented on her change of opinion.
"Although Judge Mennin was the sentencing judge, the long-standing plea agreement was agreed to by the presiding judge at the time, and the other parties involved," Mennin's rep told TMZ.
During Tekashi's case, Judge Felicia Mennin likened his offense in Houston to pushing an overly-intrusive paparazzi to the ground, which in turn informed her lenient decision. Evidently, now that she's done her homework, she sees things a little differently. She nevertheless contends that, even though her decision may have been the wrong one, the cause for "Tekashi's realignment" is no longer any of her concern.
Judge Mennin isn't the only authority figure to change their tune as federal law enforcement agencies are growing concerned that Tekashi 6ix9ine may be at the center of a growing East-West battle of the Coasts, that could turn violent at any moment.
