T.I. Sentenced to 366 Days in the Slammer

by at . Comments

Rapper T.I. was sentenced to one year and one day in a Georgia prison as part of his plea deal with prosecutors over a 2007 felony weapons charge.

The Grammy-winning hip-hop star was accompanied by his family, manager and longtime partner Tameka Cottle (a.k.a. Tiny Cottle) at the morning hearing.

Under the terms of a deal brokered last March, T.I. pleaded guilty to a federal weapons charge and agreed to complete 1,000 hours of community service prior to his sentencing and pay a $100,000 fine in exchange for a relatively light sentence.

He must do another 500 hours of community service after getting sprung.

The 28-year-old T.I. (real name is Clifford Harris Jr.), is required to turn himself to prison within the next 60 days, but is not expected do so before May 19.

Northern Georgia District Judge Charles Pannell Jr., who praised the artist for exceeding the expectations required from his plea deal, acknowledged that T.I. had commitments that prevented him from being jailed before the May date.

"Today I would like to say thank you to some, and apologize to all," said the rapper, who will serve his time at a penitentiary to be named later.

T.I. was arrested on October 13, 2007, just before the BET Hip-Hop Awards after cops caught him trying to buy unregistered machine guns and silencers.

Couldn't make time for criminal behavior on a day he wasn't performing, apparently. Makes Chris Brown's pre-Grammys walloping of Rihanna seem tame.
