T.I. Released From Prison, Enters Halfway House

As previously reported, rapper T.I. was granted early release from prison  yesterday, December 22nd and was admitted into a halfway house in Atlanta.

XXL  Magazine spoke Tip’s defense lawyer, Steve Sadow, who confirmed the news. “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 Bureau of Prison sentence.“

Sadow also told the magazine the terms of  T.I.’s new living conditions. “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.” {SOURCE}

T.I. had served time at Forrest City Prison in Arkansas since May 26, on charges of possession of unregistered machine guns and silencers, as well as firearms from a convicted felon.  The rapper will  finish  his federal sentence in March of 2010.
