TI gets judge’s permission to attend Easter services

The rapper is under house arrest

TI has been granted permission by a US federal magistrate judge to attend Easter Sunday services.

The rapper, who is under house arrest until he is tried on weapons charges, can attend services at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church near his home in Atlanta from 8:30am to 2:00pm.

After that he must return home, and he must be accompanied by a court-approved monitor and one of his attorneys, reports the Associated Press.

TI, real name Clifford Harris, was arrested in Atlanta on October 13 for allegedly trying to buy unregistered guns and silencers, as previously reported.

If convicted of the weapons charges, TI could face up to 10 years in jail and an estimated $500,000 fine.
