T.I. will report to an Arkansas federal prison on May 26 to begin his one-year-and-one-day jail sentence for felony weapons charges, it was revealed Friday (May 15).
According to The Associated Press, paperwork filed in court shows that the rapper has until noon that day to report to the Forrest City low-security federal prison. T.I.’s lawyers had attempted to place their client in a location closer to his Atlanta home, to no avail.
His sentence is the result of his October 2007 arrest for illegally attempting to purchase firearms. T.I. is a convicted felon and it is not permissible by law for him to own any guns.
