In the year that he is awaiting sentencing, T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris, must complete at least 1,000 hours of a total 1,500 hours of community service, talking to youth groups about the pitfalls of guns, gangs and drugs.
U.S. Attorney David Nahmias said Harris will remain "under strict bond conditions" during the next year.
He said Harris' sentencing was deferred "to allow him to perform a unique and extensive program — at least 1,000 hours — of community service. That service will focus on using his high public visibility and his talents to tell at-risk young people about the mistakes he has made and to educate them about the dangers of violence, guns, gangs and drugs."
Nahmias said under the agreement, Harris will have to serve a year in prison and three years of supervised home detention, perform a total of 1,500 hours of community service and pay a $100,000 fine.
T.I. gets caught with machine guns and silencers, as a convicted felon, and all he gets on FEDERAL gun charges is 1500 hours of community service, one year in prison, three years of "supervised home detention" and $100,000 fine? Really? Damn. Who's his lawyer? If he wasn't already big time his business is gonna go through the roof as every drug dealin', gun toting, gangster is gonna want him to perform some of his T.I. magic for them.
