T.I. To Serve Two Months For Gun Charges

Having been credited 305 days for home detention, Tip will only serve two months for his 2007 gun charges.

The Associated Press reports that when Clifford "T.I." Harris [click to read] reports to the Forrest City low-security prison on May 26, the award-winning rapper, actor and businessman will serve what will amount to a two-month stint. Initial reports stated the "King of the South" would serve 366 days in prison for multiple weapons charges [click to read]. The reduced sentence was due to a special deal which called for T.I. to remain on home confinement and complete a series of community service programs, including an MTV series.

Fellow artists such as 50 Cent and Mysonne leveled allegations of snitching and secret deals with prosecutors [click to read], which T.I. vehemently denied. Officials say T.I. will receive no preferential treatment, and he will face three years probation as well as a $100,000 fine upon his release.

"Unless there are custody or security concerns, all incoming inmates are placed in general population," said R.D. Weeks, a spokesman for the prison. If T.I. would have been convicted on all of the weapons charges he was initially charged with, he would have faced a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison as well as $250,000 for each charge in his three-count indictment from 2007 [click to read].
