T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris, also will have his arraignment, where he will enter a plea of not guilty and find out which U.S. District Court judge is presiding over his case.
Harris was arrested Saturday on weapons charges in a sting at a Midtown parking lot. Because of an overflow crowd that came to attend Harris's first-appearance hearing on Monday, Baverman will hold the bond hearing in a larger courtroom at the Richard B. Russell Federal Building and Courthouse.
Federal prosecutors are moving to have Harris held without bond until his trial, which could be several months away. To obtain a bond, Harris's lawyers must convince Baverman there is a reasonable assurance that, based on the conditions of his pre-trial release, Harris will not be a risk of fleeing and will not be a danger to the community or to any particular person.
If convicted, Harris faces almost certain prison time.
