The guy responsible for murdering T.I.‘s childhood friend and assistant, Philant Johnson, was sentenced to 66 years in prison. Hosea Thomas received his sentencing in an Ohio courtroom one day before Christmas Eve (Dec. 23rd) after being convicted in November for the murder of Johnson, stemming from a gunfire exchange in May 2006. Justice has definitely been served!

As of yet, no more information has been released as far as parole eligibility and when his sentence actually begins. But we do know math, and since Hosea Thomas is 40 years old, he’ll be 106 years old when he’s released from prison. Or dead … whichever comes first. Even though this won’t bring Philant Johnson back, T.I. and Johnson’s other friends and family can rest a little easier.
