According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Tip is expected to plead guilty to his federal weapons charges later today.
Although details of the announcement were not disclosed, federal prosecutors and Harris’ defense team have been engaged in intense plea negotiations the past several weeks. The plea agreement must be approved by a federal judge. The case has been assigned to Charles Pannell Jr.
Damn homey. I wonder what he’s looking at. I’ll update when the plea is announced.
UPDATE: So the AP has some info about the plea. If this turns out to be true, Clifford is making off like a bandit:
The 27-year-old singer, whose real name is Clifford Harris, was 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, according to two people familiar with the negotiations who spoke on condition of anonymity because the plea deal had not been finalized yet Thursday morning.
