T.I., aka Clifford Harris, says he hopes that others will learn from his mistakes. “Although I am not thrilled about my next year and a day, I am pleased that I am beginning the process of putting this all behind me,” the rapper said at a press conference after a Northern Georgia District judge sentenced the rapper to one year and one day in prison on Friday (March 27) for felony weapons charges stemming from his October 2007 arrest on the eve of the BET Hip-Hop Awards. “Thank you and I apologize to my family, to the young men, young women that I mentor. I hope that I can keep at least one, if not a million or more, from going down a similar path. I just want to say thank you.” Video of the press conference at Turner.com has since been removed.
