On his day in court, T.I. received 11 months in jail as a result of the Los Angeles arrest that violated conditions of his parole. Looks like helping that suicidal jumper did little to sway the judge who deemed the T.I. “experiment” failed.
Declaring that T.I. “has had about the limit of second chances,” U.S. District Judge Charles Pannell Jr. sentenced the rapper and movie actor to 11 more months in prison for violating his probation. The rapper will begin serving his time at a later date.
T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris Jr., asked the court for leniency.
“I screwed up,” said the rapper, wearing a three-piece gray suit. “I screwed up bigtime, and I’m sorry. I’m truly and sincerely sorry. I don’t want and I don’t need to use drugs anymore. I want them out of my life.”
But Pannell was unmoved. [AJC]
