U.S.A. v. CLIFFORD “T.I.” HARRIS (2008)
The Government charged internationally known rapper T.I. with unlawfully possessing silencers, machine guns and possession of firearms by a convicted felon.
T.I. was arrested on the night he was to receive Grammy Awards in Atlanta. The Government opposed bond. The defense team included Attorneys Steve Sadow and Ed Garland.
Over the Government’s objection bond was set at two (2) million dollars cash secured by property and included home detention.
After intense and lengthy negotiations the Government agreed to a sentence not to exceed one (1) year to begin one (1) year later after 1000 hours of community service.
This has been considered the deal of the century and the most creative federal sentencing ever and T.I. did not have to snitch on anyone.
Attorney Dwight L. Thomas has represented T.I since 2003 on several prior cases obtaining dismissal of felony drug charges, dismissal of a two (2) state felony gun charges, and dismissal of two (2) felony aggravated assault charges.
T.I. and Attorney Dwight L. Thomas have a special professional relationship of mutual respect, mutual admiration and mutual understanding.
