"An entertainer who portrays a ‘gangster image’ to promote his music does not make him a member of an enterprise," Lazaro said, according to the NYT.
Now, the musician could face the mandatory minimum of 47 years behind bars or a maximum of life. However, his cooperation with federal prosecutors could affect his sentencing. For the time being, he remains in prison.
Hernandez previous legal issues include allegedly choking a 16-year-old at a Houston, Texas, mall. In 2015, he also plead guilty to the use of a child in a sexual performance.
