T.I. is F.R.E.E. (well, not really)

CLIFFORD HARRIS - AKA T.I. - FREED FROM JAIL: But he's still under custody ... at home. source

*T. I. is out of jail, but he's still under arrest. House arrest. The rapper, whose real name is Clifford Harris, posted a $3 million bond Friday and was allowed to leave federal court. He'll be confined to his home to await trial on weapons charges.

"I want to thank all the fans for their support," Harris said as he left the courthouse. "Due to the severity of the situation, I can't say much more." Before hopping into a black sport utility vehicle, he added, "I want to get all of this behind me."

U.S. Magistrate Judge Alan Baverman agreed to the bond over government objections so long as Harris follows certain conditions, including remaining in a home except for medical appointments and court appearancesm reports the AP.

Harris, 27, also was required to surrender his passport, not own any guns and stay away from witnesses and informants in the case. The only people who will be allowed to live with him are his girlfriend and children. Visitors must be approved by the court.

Baverman sternly warned him against violating conditions of his bond. The judge said that if Harris gets into any trouble or violates the terms of his release, "a number of very bad things will happen." That includes his bond being revoked and any sentence he receives later being potentially increased.

Harris told Baverman he understood the conditions. A status conference in the case is set for Nov. 5.

He was arrested by federal authorities on October 13 for allegedly buying unregistered machine guns and silencers. Harris faces up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine for each count

Please know...threats of hell and bible scriptures are futile-look at your church if you don't believe me! Get your 'body of christ' in order and then come talk to me.

Yours in Reason, Bria :)
