“The 27-year-old singer, whose real name is Clifford Harris, was expected to be sentenced to 1,500 hours of community service talking to youth groups around the country, followed by about 12 months in prison, according to two people familiar with the negotiations who spoke on condition of anonymity because the plea deal had not been finalized yet Thursday morning.
His prison time could be increased or reduced, depending on his fulfillment of the terms of the deal and good behavior, the two people familiar with the negotiations said. His talks to youth groups are supposed to be about the pitfalls of guns, gangs and drugs.”
1,500 hours of community service talking to youth groups around the country (who if we’re honest, are not idiots and won’t take anything that comes out of T.I’s mouth, with regards to guns and drugs, remotely seriously), followed by a 12 month prison sentence isn’t bad, considering he was initially looking at doing a 10 year stretch.
