TI only to serve two months in prison

Posted May 19, 2009 by JJSaidIt Staff




Details of T.I.’s impending incarceration were released over the weekend.


The rapper will serve his federal prison sentence on weapons charges in Arkansas, according to the Associated Press, and he’ll get credit for 305 days of home detention that he already served – which means his actual time behind bars will likely last only two months.      


The artist, born Clifford J. Harris Jr., must report to Forrest City’s low-security federal prison by noon on May 26, according to court filings. There, he will join 1,500 other inmates as he serves a year-and-one-day prison sentence after pleading guilty in March to federal weapons charges in Atlanta.      


Upon his release, T.I. will be on probation for three years. He must also pay a $100,000 fine as part of his sentence.      


The 28-year-old rap star was arrested after trying to buy unregistered machine guns and silencers from undercover federal agents in 2007. That came after his best friend was killed following a post-performance party in Cincinnati in 2006. The rapper has said the bullets that killed his friend were meant for him.      


T.I. had faced a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine for each charge in his three-count indictment.

    i had a friend who was in the a situation like ti and he said that each gun charge carried a 5 yr prison term and he had 7. federal time meant he was facing 35 yrs and when they take you in the lil room, the federal prosecutor got all the power and you will sing like artha franklin at the presidental inauguration. so he told where bought the guns, who he boght the guns from and how the person got the guns and the gun sellers peeps.

    wow…ya’ll don’t know nothing about the court system what so ever!! if he snitched liked most of you…hell almost everyone claims. it would be documented on who the gun seller and who sold the gun seller the guns in order to justify why his sentenced was reduced. trust the government don’t care that much if at all for t.i. to give him such a generous reduction. plus he wouldn’t willingly go into the main population in the prison, he isn’t that crazy if he had snitched to do that. this whole a friend of a friend bs…if they hadn’t put real time into a college to be a lawyer then that word don’t mean much. the man is serving his time like every other person that breaks the law so stop hating. you will be rockin’ to his new single as soon as he get out anyways.
