Quality Control is working hard to get the other half of the City Girls, JT, out of prison early.
On Tuesday, it was reported that JT’s legal team filed a motion to have her moved from prison to a halfway house, where she would be able to work on music with Yung Miami.
JT was sentenced to 2 years for felony fraud charges, but was recently given 108 days (about 3.5 months) good conduct time credit, bringing her time served to 15.6 months. Because of this, her lawyers felt it would granted her permission to live in the halfway house.
“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 files read . “[She] is one of two girls that make up the rap duo City Girls,” the documents add. “Beginning around her change of plea City Girls became a force in the music industry. They have grown an intense fan base and have developed relationships with the elite of the elite.”
Sadly, the judge has denied the request due to the courts feeling they have no authority on the topics. They feel it is better for the Bureau of Prisons to decide on the motion. No word on when she’ll meet with the Bureau, but good news is, the possibility of moving into the halfway house is still on the table.
