During the latest episode of The Real Housewives Of Atlanta, Sheree Whitfield stated that her boyfriend would be getting out of prison pretty soon, in fact, later in the year. Tyrone Gilliams was previously scheduled to get out in 2018, but if reports are accurate, that might not be the case after all.
According to a report from BET.com, Tyrone’s request to get out of jail was shot down by the New York Federal Court. Gilliams wanted to get out early and petitioned the court for an early release, but it didn’t work out as planned.
RadarOnline claims Tyrone was put in prison for 120 months back in 2013 because of securities fraud and wire fraud charges. The organization claims he was supposed to get out later this year.
In 2016, his attempt to challenge his sentence was denied. Radar stated that in January of this year, Gilliams claimed the conviction was based on faulty evidence, including the charge that he was the leader of the group.
Tyrone also alleged that his lawyer was incompetent, leading to an unfair sentence. The man supposedly begged the court to let him out.
The judge, Deborah A. Batts, denied his March 20th filing because he didn’t offer any new evidence to corroborate his story.
He barely made a new case; he just shifted blame on to the other men he worked with and his supposedly “incompetent” lawyer. To make matters worse, Tyrone will be sitting in prison for even longer.
Gilliams will now get out on the 14th of November in 2022, making his sentence a little over four years. That’s a long time to sit in jail. It appears as though Sheree might have to get a new man after all unless she wants to wait forty-eight months.
