TeeRoy's 2 Cents:
- It’s still “Free JT!” until the words are reversed.
- Late last year, there was a rumor that she'd be ought in time for Christmas.
- She's currently serving time on felony identity theft charges.
- She's convicted of a serious crime -- they can't just let her walk.
- It's not like she killed someone. Let that woman come home and start earning again.
City Girls rapper J.T. won’t be coming home early.
The incarcerated artist put in a formal request in hopes of being transferred out of jail and into a halfway house with nine months to go on her bid. The court denied her application, but not for the reasons you may think. The court says it’s up to the Bureau of Prisons to make the call, not the judge.
As of July 12th, she’ll have served for one year. Under 2018’s First Step Act, that earns her credit for 54 days of good conduct toward an early release. That 54 day period will doubled, since she also gets credit for beginning the final year of her sentence. From a legal standpoint, she should be eligible to come home as many as 108 days early. But right now, J.T.’s lawyer is expecting her to be transferred. To a halfway house on September 21st, when she has six months left on her sentence. (XXL)
