JONESBORO, Ga., Nov. 13 (UPI) -- U.S. Rapper T.I. says he is innocent of the charges against him and grateful to the Georgia judge that placed him under house arrest instead of in jail.

The Atlanta-based recording artist, whose real name is Clifford Harris Jr., spoke about his legal woes in a brief video message posted on Streetcred.com, a social networking Web site he started, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Tuesday.

"You know, it's a very trying time right now, but I want to let everybody know that I plead not guilty and I gotta stress my innocence, you know, to everyone out there who's listening," he said. "God will never take you to what he can't take you through."

Harris also expressed gratitude that U.S. Magistrate Judge Alan Baverman ordered him under house arrest while he awaits trial on weapons charges.

"And thank you to the judge for even allowing me the privilege of being on house arrest and being here -- instead of, you know, the clear alternative," Harris said.
