T.I. Can't Have Whatever He Likes

World-famous rap star T.I. was sentenced in Atlanta federal court Friday to one year and one day in prison and ordered to pay a $100,300 fine on weapons charges related to purchasing machine guns and silencers.

The rapper, whose real name is Clifford Harris, reached the terms of the sentence in a plea agreement with prosecutors last year.

He also was sentenced to some property forfeiture, supervised release for three years after his prison sentence, 365 days of home confinement (he has already served 305) and 1,500 hours of community service (1,030 served).

He also must undergo DNA testing, drug counseling, cannot own firearms and must submit to reasonable searches and a financial audit.

The plea agreement, which federal authorities called unique, allowed the rapper to remain out of prison for a year while he performed community service.
He is expected to begin his sentence in the next 6-8 weeks. (WTF?)
