Update: Lawyer Confirms T.I. Release

Posted By on December 22, 2009

    Well it's true. T.I.'s lawyer Steve Shadow has confirmed that TIP was released from prison this morning (December 22nd) and will be put into a halfway house in his hometown of Atlanta. "He was released this morning from his place of incarceration in Arkansas," Sadow said. "As I understand it, he’s on his way back to the Atlanta area. He has to report to a halfway house in Atlanta sometime this evening. And he will then spend somewhere between the next two or three months in a halfway house, ending his Buruea of Prison sentence."

    TIP's lawyer went on to explain what conditions T.I. will be living in. "A halfway house is more along the lines of a residential dormitory," he explained. "You live within this house that is broken into areas for living, and you are permitted to leave during the day for certain reasons of which would be employment, medical reasons, things of that nature, and you return to the halfway house in the evening. So it’s a restriction on your liberty but it’s a way for you to reenter into society and not be confined within a jail type institution 24-hours a day."

    As we previously reported, according to T.I.'s lawyer (the same as above), TIP had three months left on his sentence at which time he could be released from the Arkansas’ Forrest City Prison.
