Reporting on the domino effects of the Tekashi 6ix9ine/Nine Trey racketeering trial has become a bit of a formality. Every time the pending trial re-enters the spin cycle, the pronouncement reads the same - it's only the names that change in passing. For the purpose of feeding the people who feel obliged to finished what they've started (or those affected on the interior), here's another pre-trial update to help you stay the course.

Aaron "Bat" Young is the latest Nine Trey associates to plead guilty in pre-trial hearings. Young made his declaration with his attorney Aaron Mysliwiec present in the room. As you likely know, the whole process is set to begin in September after all the pleas have been rendered.

Young's charges haven't changed since the original group indictment. The Nine Trey associate accepted charges of "narcotics trafficking for allegedly dealing heroin and fentanyl; and a firearms charge," as per the original listing. Throughout the process, Tekashi 6ix9ine and his attorneys have turned their back on public discourse, especially as it concerns the plight of the other affiliates.

Aaron "Bat" Young joins a list that includes Tekashi, his manager Shotti, Jamel "Mel Murda" Jones, Jensel "Ish" Butler, and Faheem "Crippy" Walter in the guilty bin. Kintea "Kooda" McKenzie, Fuguan Lovick, Anthony "Harv" Ellison, Roland "Ro Murda" Martin, and Denard Butler have yet to follow in their ordinances. Just yesterday, the Feds identified Fuguan Lovick out of the bunch as the shooter during the Barclays Center fight last Spring.
