TMZ has an update on the current legal issues for Tekashi69.

According to the latest report, Tekashi69’s lawyer is ready to go to trial to prove Tekashi69’s innocence. Previously, prosecutors submitted photos to a judge provind that Tekashi69 should remain in jail until his trial is slated to begin in September 2019. However, Lazzaro is said to not be phased by the evidence and is not ready to accept a plea deal.

Lazzaro reportedly stated, “A plea deal is simply off the table, even if the feds offer one.” He says they’re prepared to go trial and prove Tekashi’s innocence.

Prosecutors allegedly have photographical and video evidence that links Tekashi and Kifano “Shotti” Jordan to three armed robberies and shootings that took place in Brooklyn, New York earlier this year. Per the report, none of the images show the rapper holding a weapon or pulling a trigger, but the FBI alleges that he was the “mastermind” of the crimes.

Also, Lazarro said of his client, “Tekashi was never part of a conspiracy, plain and simple. Nor did he ever participate in any incidents that the government has alleged.”
