T.I. Granted Permission to Attend Easter Sunday Services Despite House Arrest


T.I.


A federal magistrate judge ruled Thursday, March 20 that T.I. can be away from home from 8:30 A.M. to 2 P.M. Sunday, March 23 for services by New Birth Missionary Baptist Church.

A federal magistrate judge ruled Thursday, March 20 that T.I. can attend Easter services. The rapper, who's been under house arrest while he awaits his trial on weapons charges, has been granted the permission to attend a service sponsored by the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church from 8:30 A.M. until 2 P.M. on Easter Sunday, March 23.

The rapper, indeed, must be accompanied by a court-approved monitor and one of his attorneys. The service, according to MTV, was originally planned to be held at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, but due to tornado damage at the venue, it may be held at the church's location in Lithonia, Georgia.

T.I. was charged with illegally purchasing machine guns and silencers in an Atlanta parking lot, hours before the BET Awards back on October 13, 2007. He's been pleaded not guilty and is currently freed on $3 million bond; $2 million in cash bond and $1 million in property. He reportedly is facing 30 years in jail if convicted of the charges.

Initially had his lawyers filed two motions on November 6, asking a judge to allow him to have visitors at his house on Thanksgiving as he's under 24-hour house arrest while waiting trial, T.I. later on decided to withdraw his request because of the strong opposition they faced from prosecutors.

During his house arrest, T.I. has been spending his time writing some materials for a new album, reportedly to be titled "Paper Trail," which is expected to be released in September 2008 via Grand Hustle/Atlantic.
