Man Down: Rapper T.I. Sentenced to 11 Months in Federal Prison

October 5, 2015

It seems having a team of high-profile lawyers and showing remorse for his mistakes didn't help, as rapper T.I. was ordered back to jail for the umpteenth time.

T.I., who recently was released after doing nine months for a weapons charge, was arrested again for possession of a controlled substance after being stopped for making an illegal u-turn. In violation of his probation, he was sentenced today for eleven more months in federal prison.

“As I discovered in talking to my probation officer, I had many problems from my childhood. Now I am down to the disease of addiction. I need help. For me, my mother my kids. I need the court to give me mercy. Judge, don’t send me back to prison,” pleaded T.I.

It has also been reported that T.I’s attorneys argued that the drugs in his system were the result of a root canal and T.I admitted to using them after the surgery. He also asked the judge to sentence him to rehab for drug addiction but unfortunately that didn't work. He has two weeks to turn himself in.
