TI’s Bodyguard Gets Sentenced

TI

The new Livesteez just reported on TI’s bodyguard, that was involved in the gun case, being sentenced to just as much time as Clifford:

Former bodyguard to Hip-Hop sensation T.I. has been sentenced to a year and one day in federal prison for his involvement in the weapons scheme that led to the rapper’s 2007 arrest. The Smoking Gun reported that Corey Williams accepted a plead deal for acquiring illegal firearms, which included machine guns and silencers, for T.I. whose legal name is Clifford Harris.

Court papers confirmed that Williams was hired by Harris in July of 2007. Shortly after, Williams’ clean rap sheet allowed him to obtain the firearms for the rapper who had been prohibited from purchasing weaponry due to his previous criminal history. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms learned about the transaction when Williams made an attempt to purchase the gun and silencer without registering the weapon, which is a federal offense. After his arrest, Williams agreed to wear a wire to record several face-to-face encounters with Harris, which eventually led to his arrest on felony weapons charges. Harris was charged and faced up to 10 years in prison, but struck a deal with prosecutors that permitted him to intervene in the lives of troubled youth as a 1000 hour community service pledge. The rapper chronicled the interventions in an MTV reality series called “Road to Redemption.”

Harris and Williams were both sentenced to a year and one day in federal prison. While Harris’ sentence will commence in May of this year, Williams has already begun his jail time

Wonder what his Road to Redemption was…

    his body guard is a snitch. i hate snitches.

  • jb_1030 (Has her DVR set to record Cougar starring Vivica Fox )

    His guard did snitch, but this time snitching made something negative into a positive.

  • Luv-Lee

    WHO EXACTLY DID T.I. SNITCH ON????? SOMEBODY PLEASE EXPLAIN TO ME WHY HE AND HIS BODYGAURD IS BEING REFERRED TO AS A SNITCH????

  • Lady Architect

    I’m glad that bodyguard cooperated with authorities and wore that wire. First off he was stupid to try such a thing and he should’ve learned from the fact that his employer can’t even legally register a firearm. There’s not enough money in the world to get me to screw up my clean record for some other fool. SMH…that “Road to Redemption” thing is no community service, it is a job…he gets paid for that. What they should’ve done was made him do some community service without the cameras and the money.

    The body guard snitched on TI so he would go away for 10 years since he was the one actually buying the guns

  • Luv-Lee

    Ok…the the body gaurd IS a snitch. But why does eveyone call T.I. a snitch. Who did he snitch on??

  • Eryca K

    I commend TI for his efforts. He has ALWAYS reached out to the poor communities without being paid for it. He has been a very active parent in his child’s daycare and often reads books to the children.

    Change is always good. He’s trying to be a more focused and positive person.

  • Luv-Lee

    I just read the article so I CLEARLY understand why T.I’s body gaurd IS a snitch. That right there is my definition of a snitch. But whid did T.I. snitch on?? Who did he “rat out”???

  • jb_1030 (Has her DVR set to record Cougar starring Vivica Fox )

    TI didn’t snitch on anyone or at least that is what they are saying. Everyone was saying he snitched because how could he get so little time, be on house arrest with the charges. BUt when you look at it, yeah TI told him to buy the guns, but the body guard actually gave the money to the Feds.
    So TI would , in my opinion, get a lighter sentence. If teh body guard didn’t snitch, then he would have been gone like forever.

  • sxyQblondie STILL TOO BLESSED TO BE STRESSED

    @JB

    YOUR POINT MAKES NO SENSE SWEETIE! TI PARTICIPATED IN THE ENTIRE CONSPIRACY TO POSSESS THOSE WEAPONS, INCLUDING FINANCING THE COST!

    YOUR ARGUMENT IS LIKE SAYING A MAJOR DRUG DEALER SHOULDN’T GET MUCH TIME BECAUSE HE GIVES THE MONEY TO HIS UNDERLING TO GO PICK UP THE SUPPLIES!

  • dfiestyone

    That’s good for T.I.’s bodyguard because he got the same amount of time as T.I. did!!! What a dumb ass!!! Now when he gets out, he will be unemployed!!! and T.I. may even be out before his monkey ass!!! SMH
    If he was so concerned about going to jail then he never should have agreed to buy the weapons in the forst place. He knew that if he was caught, he could go to jail!

  • VoiceOfReason

    If the bodyguard had to snitch in order to get only a year, how do you think TI, the convicted felon that was buying guns, only got a year??

    He DID something to please those Feds and it sure wasn’t a reality show.

    I aint hatin, I would SNITCH, SNITCH, SNITCH too.

  • ShavonDenise

    Isnt it ironic that the dude that snitched to get less time gets the same amount of time as T.I.? It goes to show you that more than anything over zealous law enforcement can be dumb sometimes. I really dont think that the snitch thing is too serious but of course people will make him live with that for the rest of his life! I look at it like I just work for you and the feds was about to throw me under the jail so if I come to you and tell you this will you take care of my family and me when Im in there?? Lets think people. T.I. wasnt his family he was his employer! IDK its a tough subject but some people dont deserve the snitch title, the just told the truth

  • Luv-Lee

    WHO DID T.I. SNITCH ON???? WHO??? No one is answering that question, yet everyone is calling him a snitch. If T.I snitched, who did he snitch on?

  • Mhax Money Bagz

    @ Nique
    As long as the courts see it as “Serving the Community” It’s community service. That money from the show may go to charity !?!?! If not, when was he going to do this 1000 hours that needed to be done before he goes in!?!?
    His bodyguard is a snitch though. Any nigg@ wearing a wire, is a snitch, warranted or not! (Hustelers Credo) Don’t take a chance … unless you got one!

  • PHILLY-goo-goo

    tip-ster is a snitch as well. both are but thats not my bag.

  • ridin high so i can slap down a pigeon

    road to redemption was done so he wouldnt be locked up for a long time i guess it was nothing but a publicity stunt not a damn community service, if he wouldnt have got popped best believe none of those kids would have ever met him

  • Nique

    @Mhax Money Bagz

    FYI-The courts didnt count his work on Road to Redemption as part of his community service hours-And find me a court in America thats gonna agree that PAID work is gonna count towards your required hours of COMMMUNITY SERVICE!!

  • Nique

    @Imara

    Obviously you are a fan of T.I., so did you want a cookie for writing that book up there?? Good for Clifford that he is trying to get his life together but it took something so big for him to realize the error of his ways?? I am not buying into it-if it had been any other Joe Shmoe-they would have been thrown the book at him. If Clifford felt that strongly about trying to make sure the youth didnt follow in his path than why not do the show for FREE??

  • http://BOSSIP.COM SYKLOPS 562

    a silencer is 15 years by itself!! what a deal!!

  • LoriE.

    Dang. I wonder what they said to make him put on a wire. That’s messed up.
