Ellison and his attorney maintain the alleged kidnapping was a publicity stunt.
Two defendants in the Tekashi 6ix9ine trial have received their verdicts.
Anthony “Harv” Ellison has been found guilty on maiming, assault with a dangerous weapon, and kidnapping in aid of racketeering charges. Ellison was found not guilty of assault with a dangerous weapon and firearms charges.
The second defendant, Aljermiah “Nuke” Mack was found guilty on racketeering and narcotics trafficking charges, and not guilty on a narcotics-associated firearms offense.
Ellison and his attorney maintain that the July 2018 kidnapping was a publicity stunt staged by Tekashi 6ix9ine. In an exclusive statement to Complex, Ellison’s representative Camille Cushman alleged that federal agents are banking on jurors’ bias towards gang culture and that officers promised Ellison an early release if he reiterated their theories. Cushman outlined numerous incongruous story elements.
Tekashi 6ix9ine has yet to receive a verdict and faces 32 years to life.
