T.I. Hires All-Star Lineup of Lawyers

As T.I. prepares to fight federal gun charges after his arrest in Atlanta last weekend, the King of the South has gathered an all-star lineup of lawyers to defend him. According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, high profile lawyers Ed Garland and Don Samuel will join forces with T.I.’s other attorneys, Steve Sadow and Dwight Thomas. “[Sadow] and I have known each other a very long time, and both my partner [Samuel] and I have worked together with him on many cases,” Garland told the AJC. Garland previously represented another famous client, NFL linebacker Ray Lewis, who beat a murder charge in 2000 after pleading to a misdemeanor. T.I.’s case, however, may prove to be more difficult, as the 27-year-old rapper was indicted on three federal charges on Wednesday (October 16) and charged with possessing unregistered machine guns and silencers, unlawfully possessing machine guns and being a convicted felon in possession of firearms. Federal prosecutors currently want to keep T.I. locked up until his trial, which is predicted to be at least several months away. The AJC reports it will be hard for T.I.’s super team of lawyers to win bond for the rapper since he has a prior crack cocaine-dealing felony conviction.
