T.I.

SPRUNG FROM PRISON!!!

T.I.
has just returned to a halfway house to complete his prison sentence -- this after he was yanked out of the halfway house last week and returned to prison for allegedly engaging in shenanigans on his tour bus.

As TMZ first reported, prison officials sent U.S. Marshals to the halfway house last week, after concluding T.I. had unauthorized people on the bus that transported him there.  Officials also claimed T.I. conducted business on the bus -- something his reps strongly deny.

T.I.'s lawyer, Steve Sadow, tells TMZ, "We have good reason to believe that this favorable result was reached because of the proactive and assertive approach taken to protect T.I.'s rights by providing B.O.P. officials and the media with reliable and accurate information and that T.I. did not intend to violate his transfer furlough or any other B.O.P. rules en route from the prison facility in Arkansas to the halfway house in Atlanta."

Sadow adds, "T.I. will be released from custody on Sept. 29, and then will be supervised by the U.S. Probation Office for a period of 1 year."

I thought this last year was the final year left of his incarceration which he served because of a probation violation? If so, why is there ANY probation at all? If he violates probation, how much time does he have left to clear the system?

I'm no big T.I. fan but this makes sense. For the BOP to hold hearings w/out T.I. having counsel present was an egregious violation of rights.

The only thing I know about this guy is that he has THE ugliest wife of anyone. I'm surprised he didn't want to stay in the slammer just to get away from her.

Federal prison is like staying at a hotel. The BOP system is the inmate information system for the Federal Prison system.
I do not know who this guy is nor do I care.
