Looks like T.I. will stay in jail for at least another week after appearing in court to plead not guilty today and the judge denied immediate release on bond, though another court date has been scheduled for next Friday. Judge Alan Baverman will allow his 'dream' legal team another week to satisfy his requirements to release T.I. on house arrest.
Lawyers for Harris proposed that he be released on a $2.2 million bond, which included separate bonds backed by his record company, record company executives. Harris also agreed to post the equity of his two homes, which his lawyer, Ed Garland, estimated are worth about $1.5 million.

Garland also said Harris would agree to stay in his home with 24-hour-a-day electronic and human monitoring.

But Baverman said he wants more information about who will be chosen as Harris's monitor, who would live inside Harris's home and how they would search visitors and alert authorities if Harris violated any conditions. The judge said he wants to consider a list of companies that do such monitoring and hear details about them.

Baverman also set these tentative conditions if he does grant bond: Harris must post a $2 million cash bond plus the equity in all properties he owns. He must be locked down in his house 24/7; have an electronic monitoring device; consent to any searches; be screened for unlawful drug use; remove any safes in the home; and be allowed to live with only his girlfriend and children.

The kicker is that the prosecution made it clear in court that this is still an ongoing investigation and more charges may come! Damn Clifford, just plain 'ole damn!
