Rafael was accused by prosecutors of being the president of a local chapter of the Latin Kings, who have ties to the Blood Gang.

In court, prosecutors said they believed the attack was in retaliation for Tekashi snitching on other gang members in a federal criminal case.

Recently, prosecutors demanded the jury not be allowed to hear about Tekashi’s criminal history during the trial.

Prosecutors asked that no reference be made to “[Tekashi’] reputation for violence unless the Defendant shows some overt act by the victim at or about the time of the incident which reasonably indicated to the Defendant a need to take action in self-defense.”
