Shereé Whitfield’s Prison Boyfriend Tyrone Gilliams’ Latest Plea For Early Release Denied!

Looks like Shereé Whitfield is going to have to wait a few more years to reunite with her boyfriend Tyrone Gilliams. It's been reported that the Gilliams’ latest attempt at an early prison release has been shut down by New York federal court.

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

Apparently, 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.

As previously reported, Gilliams 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.

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