Ti Expected to Change" Not Guilty Plea"

TI Expected to Change Plea to Guilty

Rapper T.I. is expected to plead guilty to federal weapons charges and will face prison time, according to two people familiar with his case.

The 27-year-old rapper, whose real name is Clifford Harris, is expected to be sentenced to 1,500 hours of community service talking to youth groups around the country, followed by about 12 months in prison. The two people familiar with the negotiations spoke on condition of anonymity because the plea deal had not been finalized yet Thursday morning.

A change-of-plea hearing is scheduled at 1:30 p.m.

Harris was arrested Oct. 13, just blocks away and hours before he was to headline the BET Hip-Hop Awards in Atlanta. He was allegedly trying to buy unregistered machine guns and silencers. He initially pleaded not guilty, and has been under house arrest.
