City Girls JT’s Request For Halfway House Denied
It looks like JT, one-half of the Billboard-charting rap duo City Girls could have to serve her time in full, despite good behavior.
The rapper, who is currently behind bars in a Tallahassee prison, filed documents requesting to be freed months early so she could be placed in a halfway house according to The Blast. JT says she has earned 108 days good conduct time credit, and that as of July 12, 2019, she will have completed “15.6 months (12 months plus 3.6 months earned good time credit), thereby leaving 8.4 months of her sentence to be served.”
In a statement, JT’s lawyer pleaded to a judge that she could responsibly serve her remaining time in a halfway home. This would allow her to not only experience a lit bit of freedom but she’d be able to hit the studio. He also promised she’d stay crime free.
“It is without hesitation that I can proffer that you will never hear from this Defendant regarding any type of crime, much less an economic one. Granting this recommendation will allow the Defendant to get back to the studio where she belongs.”
The judge, unfortunately, denied the motion, but only because he wants the Bureau of Prisons to make the decision. There’s still a chance JT could hit the skreets a little early.
