T.I. Legal Challenge Negged By Prison Officials

by at . Comments

Looks like T.I. is stuck in prison, at least for now.

Prison officials in Atlanta put the kibosh on the legal challenge to the decision to yank the rap star back to prison immediately following his Aug. 31 release.

The Federal Bureau of Prisons told T.I.'s lawyer he was "not entitled to legal counsel" in the process by which officials review the decision to lock him up.

Authorities remanded him into federal custody for failing to disclose that his trip to a halfway house would be on a pimp ass tour bus with cameras in tow.

T.I., wife Tameka Cottle and even the halfway house officials insist he did nothing wrong, but the prison officials have refused to budge on this matter.

T.I.'s attorney originally sent the Bureau a letter last week, asking to be present at the hearings that would decide his client's fate. He was turned down.

Two hearings have already occurred without T.I.'s lawyer present, one last week and one the week before. It's unclear what transpired at either meeting.

For now, however, he remains locked up, though his sentence is set to expire in October, so before long, he should be free to roll out - tour bus and all.
