In the most recent episode of Real Housewives Of Atlanta, Sheree Whitfield couldn’t stop talking about her prison love Tyrone Gilliams and how he would be released in a few short months so that they can be together.
However, Radar Online reports the New York Federal courts have declined Gilliams’ request to be released early. In 2013, 51-year-old Gilliams’ was sentenced to 120 months in prison for securities and fraud charges in an attempt to steal $5 million from investors.
In 2016, he challenged his sentence only to be denied with the next consideration for release in January 2018. The documents filed by Gilliams’ states that he was not the one in charge of the fraud scheme, the government did not give over all evidence in the first place and that his counsel was no good.
He even asked to be released on bail, “during the pendency of federal habeas corpus proceedings.” However, U.S. District Judge Deborah A. Batts denied it on March 20 saying that there wasn’t any new evidence.
Whitfield will have to wait until November 14, 2022, to have Gilliams to herself. he’s being held at a prison in Yazoo City, Mississippi, which is about 6 hours away from where Whitfield is in Atlanta.
