From the AJC.com -
Declaring that T.I. "has had about the limit of second chances," an angry federal judge on Friday sentenced the rapper and movie actor to 11 more months in prison for violating his probation.
T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris Jr., asked the court for leniency.
"I screwed up," said the rapper, wearing a three-piece gray suit. "I screwed up bigtime, and I'm sorry. I'm truly and sincerely sorry. I don't want and I don't need to use drugs anymore. I want them out of my life."
"I think Mr. Harris had had about the limit of second chances," Pannell said. "The worst thing is this case was an experiment. You certainly dumped a lot of smut on the whole experiment."
