TALLAHASSEE – A Tampa rap artist who performs under the name “Toon Trill” will be spending time in federal prison after pleading guilty to tax fraud, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Florida.
Torry Williams, 24, of Tampa, was sentenced Friday (Aug. 17) to 36 months in federal prison after pleading guilty March 30 to theft of government money and aggravated identity theft. The sentence was announced by Christopher P. Canova, U.S. attorney for the Northern District of Florida.
