Anthony “Harv” Ellison, a convicted member of the infamous Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods, is seeking a reduction in his sentence in connection with the highly publicized kidnapping of rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez.
Ellison is now claiming that Hernandez’s own criminal activities played a significant role in provoking the kidnapping, which he argues provides extraordinary and compelling reasons to request a modification of his sentence.
Despite cooperating and avoiding punishment for his unlawful acts by immediately testifying at the trial in this case, Ellison asserts that it was Hernandez’s misconduct and involvement in the alleged criminal enterprise that subjected him to and provoked the kidnapping, which was captured on video.

At the time of the kidnapping, tensions were high within the Nine Trey Bloods due to the rapid rise and lucrative success of Hernandez’s career, causing divisions within the gang and straining relationships between the rapper and key members, including his former manager, Kifano “Shotti” Jordan.
Ellison’s latest attempt to reduce his sentence follows a series of legal setbacks, including the denial of his appeal to the Second Circuit on September 23, 2022, and a previous motion for compassionate release on July 7, 2021, due to the risk of contracting COVID-19, which was also denied.
Despite these setbacks, on March 1, 2023, Ellison submitted a request for compassionate release to the warden of his current facility, but he has yet to receive a response.
In his latest bid for a reduced sentence, Ellison is not challenging his conviction but is instead asserting that Hernandez’s involvement in criminal activities within the alleged enterprise contributed to his own kidnapping.
Ellison argues that Hernandez’s misconduct should be considered an extraordinary and compelling reason for a sentence modification since it played a significant role in causing the crime.
Ellison’s request for a reduction in his prison sentence is currently pending. If successful, this could have a significant impact on his lengthy incarceration, potentially leading to a substantial reduction in his prison term.
