Hip Hop recording star T.I. has been sentenced to a year and a day, the sentence the “Live Your Life” star was expecting on felony weapons charges. Appearing before a Georgia judge Friday, T.I. was admonished for “exceeding the court’s expectations” in addition to being told he may voluntarily report to prison within the next six to eight weeks. Calling T.I.’s plea deal, which included 1,000 hours of community service, many of which were covered on the former “What You Know” star’s MTV reality series “Road To Redemption,” “experimental but a success,” Judge Charles Pannell Jr. told the rapper he hopes his case will inspire similar plea deals. The courtroom was filled with a mixture of teens, T.I.’s family and Tameka “Tiny” Cottle who gathered just before proceedings began Friday morning. T.I. will discuss how he feels about his upcoming sentence on “T.I’s Road to Redemption: The Reckoning” Tuesday, March 31 at 9pm ET on MTV. As previously reported, T.I. made a plea deal last March that suggested if he completed 1,000 hours of community service before sentencing, paid a $100,000 fine and agreed to complete another 500 hours of community service after his time behind bars, he would be sentenced to a year and a day in prison.
