United States (Mass Appeal) – Meek Mill Will Serve at Least Two Years in Prison: According to a new TMZ report, the Philadelphia rapper is being sentenced to a minimum of two years behind bars for violating this probation.
Meek appeared in court today to determine whether his two run-ins with this law this year—an altercation at a St. Louis airport and a reckless driving incident in New York City—were in violation of his probation, which stems from a 2008 drugs and gun conviction. The judge ruled that although the charges related to those two arrests were dropped, the arrests themselves constitute a violation of his parole. The MMG star is now expected to serve between two and four years in state prison.
Meek got off relatively easy when he violated his probation in 2015 by traveling for a performance without mandatory court approval. He was sentenced to house arrest as well as an extended six-year probationary period. Common Pleas Court Judge Genece E. Brinkley had made it clear that she’d be harsh if he stepped foot in her courtroom again, and she’s stuck to her guns.
This is yet another misfortune for Meek Mill, who’s had an up-and-down 365 that’s included separating from Nicki Minaj and releasing his well-received third album, Wins and Losses. In regard to that album title, he’s been seeing much more of the latter than the former. Hold your head, Meek.
