T.I. Released From Prison Early

T.I. has been sentenced to 11 months in jail for violating his probation.

According to AccessAtlanta.com, T.I. appeared before U.S. District Judge Charles Pannell Jr. at 2pm and was represented by a team of six attorneys.

T.I. had been released from federal custody in March after serving a yearlong sentence in prison and a halfway house following an arrest on federal gun charges. T.I. was still on probation when he was arrested on Sept. 1 on drug charges in Los Angeles following a traffic stop in which deputies said they smelled marijuana inside his car.

After the arrest it was learned T.I. had allegedly committed three violations: possessing ecstasy, testing positive for opiates and associating with a convicted felon.

Here's hoping that this is the last time T.I. ever returns to jail. As made obvious from his rescue mission this week when he talked a jumper out of committing suicide, he's better to us out here than in there.

In any case, do you think 11 months is too harsh of a sentencing? Too lenient? Or just right? Leave your comments below.
