T.I. will not be prosecuted for felony drug charges from his arrest in September, according to reports. Prosecutors say that the amount of drugs weren’t significant enough to press any charges.
Law enforcement discovered four ecstasy pills on the ATL rapper when he was pulled over on Hollywood’s Sunset Strip.
After serving a 10 month prison sentence for federal weapons charges, a Georgia judge sentenced T.I to another 11 months in prison for breaking his federal parole with this latest arrest.
Apart of the rapper’s parole was to take at least three drug tests after his release and to actively partake in a drug and alcohol treatment program.
According to T.I.’s lawyer, Steve Sadow, the L.A. District Attorney’s Office did the right thing. Sadow says in an email to Eurweb, “They’re decision to reject T.I.’s case was the right thing to do under the circumstances.” Sadow stated he commended the office for “exercising its discretion to reject prosecution in light of the legal and factual issues involved.”
T.I. will still be required to serve his 11-month sentence. The rapper heads to the slammer on November 1.
