FORMER T.I. BODYGUARD SENTENCED

 

4.14.09 ----- Corey Williams, former bodyguard to Hip-Hop star T.I., has been sentenced to one year and a day in federal prison for his role in last year’s machine gun/silencer scandal.

 

According to the Smoking Gun, Williams entered into a plea deal for his role in purchasing illegal firearms for rapper T.I.

 

According to court records, Williams revealed that he started working for T.I. in July 2007.

 

Soon after, Williams’ previously clean record allowed him to purchase weapons for T.I., who is barred from obtaining any due to his previous criminal convictions.

 

The arrangement was discovered by ATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms) authorities when Williams attempted to purchase a machine gun without registering the weapon, which is required by federal law.

 

Upon his arrest, Williams agreed to wear a wire during face-to-face meetings with T.I., which led to the rapper’s arrest on felony weapons charges.

 

Although no charges were filed, Williams also implicated T.I. protégé Alfamega in the conspiracy.

 

T.I. faced up to 10 years in prison for the charges, but was able to secure a unique deal that allowed him to perform 1000 hours of community service to at-risk youth.

  

T.I. received the same one year sentence as his former bodyguard under his plea deal, and will start serving his sentence sometime next month.

 

Pending good behavior, the Atlanta native can be eligible for release within 10 months.

 

Corey Williams has already started his jail term.
