Philant Johnson Killer Found Guilty

Hosea Thomas has been convicted of killing Philant Johnson, T.I.’s personal assistant, in a shooting in Cincinati two years ago.

Thomas was found guilty of felonious assault and illegal fire arm possession by a convicted felon. Johnson was reportedly murdered after a club altercation spilled into a highway shooting. As previously reported, T.I. took the stand during Thomas’ trial last week. During his testamony, Tip revisited the night of the shooting from the night club incident, to the highway shooting. Tip was in town for a performance.

His brother, Pardon Thomas, turned out to be the prosecution’s star witness, as he testified against Hosea. Thomas faces life in prison and will be sentenced December 23. –Bruce Moses
