Not So Fast: Sheree Whitfield’s Prison Bae Tyrone Gilliams Denied Early Prison Release, Will Complete Entire Sentence Until November 2022

Posted March 27, 2018


Bad news for Sheree Whitfield and her prison bae Tyrone Gilliams, as the reality stars boyfriend’s wishes for an early prison release have just been shut down.

As we’ve seen on ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta‘ this season, Sheree has been hopeful that Tyrone would get an early release for good behavior and the two have been actively planning their wedding and him moving into Chateau Sheree as recent as Sunday’s episode.

Well this week it was revealed that Tyrone will NOT be getting released early and will have to serve the rest of his sentence until November 2022!

Gilliams, 51, was sentenced to 120 months in 2013 on securities fraud and wire fraud charges in an elaborate white-collar scheme to swindle investors of $5 million.

After a 2016 attempt to challenge the legality of his sentence was shut down, Gilliams filed a motion for reconsideration in January of this year.

According to the documents obtained by Radar, Gilliams claimed he wasn’t actually a “leader” in his scheme, the government “improperly withheld” evidence, and his counsel was “ineffective.”

He also begged the court to release him on bail “during the pendency of federal habeas corpus proceedings.”

But U.S. District Judge Deborah A. Batts shut down his latest arguments in a March 20 filing, claiming he offered no new evidence.

Gilliams is slated to be released on November 14, 2022 — meaning he still has over four years behind bars ahead of him.

He is currently incarcerated at a federal prison in Yazoo City, Mississippi, more than a six-hour drive from Whitfield’s native Atlanta.

The 48-year-old mother of three’s family, costars and friends have been critical of her loyalty to the felon, but she still insists the couple is meant to be together.

Damn Sheree!
