T.I. Gets Probation Revoked, Sentenced to 11 Months

Rapper T.I. had his probation revoked by a federal judge today and was sentenced to 11 months in prison.

T.I. was busted last month on felony possession of a controlled substance ... while he was on probation for a 2009 federal gun possession conviction.

T.I. told the judge he needed help for drug addiction and begged not to be sent back to prison.

We're told one of the officers from Wednesday's jumper incident testified on T.I.'s behalf.

He has two weeks to turn himself in.

It costs taxpayers more money to lock people up than to get them help for their addiction.


I'm not surprised that T.I. is being sent back to prison.

It is a known fact that more disproportionate drugs sentences are handed out to minorities.


I'd like to see all people get help for drug addiction so they
can become productive citizens.

It can cost up to $50,000 a year to lock them up.

Let's see him placed in rehab not in jail. He has shown compassion and if he can successfully beat addiction, I hope/believe he could give back 1000-fold.

And I agree with mike. If he were white the headline would be about which center he was headed to.

A perfect example of an entertainer who thought he was above the reach of the law. Before, the judge shaved four years off his sentence and allowed him to go free. Clifford then goes out and violates the terms of his early release by ingesting illegal drugs. Can we say stupid! Clifford must like being incarcerated. Like O.J.Simpson he knows his place in society.
He has proven he has the inablity to learn from his past mistakes. In all probability, this will not be Clifford's last brush with the law. He must have a secret desire to be a criminal.

Enjoy your stay at the new found cross bar hotel you loser.

Goodness.....help with drug addiction??? Sounds like the HIlton /Lohan defense...difference is he is chocolate and they are vanilla...when will wealthy Blacks learn that even though they have money...unless they are Oprah rich...they are still just colored folks with a few Benjamins...I hope he wins his appeal....jail is a waste of time and energy and should only be reserved for harden criminals who have committed crimes against others....otherwise some other form of punishment is needed.

its kind of embrassing how people can compare ti to hilton and lohan when ive noticed he gettin some little weenie sentences wasnt he braggin about pistol and dope charges b4 the pistol charges that landid him in prison? but yet he only recieved 1 year how many felonies do you have to aquire to get 5 years like everybody else? then on top of that he got to be a trustee in prison in less then 1 funky azz year? No sympathy from the hood dont get it twisted his new rapp name should be "Trustee T.I. less than 5. album "king uncaged" stop tryin to claim more fame off of whats less harsh then gangsters and thugs that dont have million dollar records out. He just a upper class N***a thats why every sentence he gets seems harsh. but folks who get caught with ounces of coke get way more time as in 4 more years then he got for all them straps. Hip Hop will die if people believe that hes been gettin harsh or even normal sentecing. Young Turk from the hot boys had a shoot out with the police boosie incarcerated for 9 Ti the mickey mouse of this street shhhhh "Trustee TI less than 5" keep it hood keep it all the way real

you guys do realize he can face more time. You are comparing him to LL and Paris. Well for one hes only doing 11 months for violating probation. Thats feds, that doesnt close his case. That just says yes he violated probation by having drugs in his car and being under the influence and coming in contact with the police, anyone familiar with parole and probation can tell you that... LAPD can still pick up his case. Theyll send parolees back to state for up to a year just for the violation This happens to not clebraties white black as well as celbraties. There is a huge diffrence between summary probation which is what Lindsey seems to be on( but she checks in more then most people on summary,) then FELONY probation. Just like in parole non violent offenders get a way easier parole where they dont check in, where someone like TI who is considered a violent offender because of gun charges has to check in frequently. Having been through the system i know first hand. Had he had non violent charges he may have been giving a chance to do a program just like CA state parolees faced in the same situation. But hes considered a violent offender whos not only wasted his life but is showing kids still to this day the way of the streets is life. And when all these youg kids are doing life for gang banging and being "hard" hes living it up and its not right. He is a waste of space and I hope the LAPD picks up his case and gives him more time on top of the violation. Maybe hell learn

TI was on probation for a federal gun charge! How does that have anything to do with Lohan and Hilton? Personally, I think those socialite whores belong in prison for 11 months too. But they didn't get busted on felony drug possession while on probation for guns. Tired of "dumb people" blaming society for their problems after they do something stupid. "Dumb people", please!!!

For all the comments defending Lindsey Lohan and Paris Hilton you must be crackers . Crime is Crime and for those that violate should be accountable and face the law. Lindsey is sent to jail and before closing hours she is out on bail. Paris is caught with hard drugs and gets probation. If you walk in the shoes of a black person you would understand the frustrations !
