Meek Mill Given 2-4 Year Prison Sentence For Violating Probation
Rapper Meek Mill is heading back to jail.
And uniquely it stems from legal wrangle dating back to when the 30-year-old was 19.
The Hip-Hop star was given a 2-4 year custodial prison sentence yesterday, after a Philadelphia court found him guilty of violating his probation.
See, after being jailed for a period in 2009 (due to drug and weapons charges), he was released under a five-year parole agreement.
Yet, in the period since, he’s been arrested four times.
Indeed, there was a fight at a St Louis airport and a reckless driving detainment in New York.
Interestingly, both of those cases were dropped. But the judge asserted that the arrests in themselves were violations. Hence, today’s sentence.
Denting his defence was a 2015 violation which saw him placed on house arrest after he left Pennsylvania for a gig without getting approval from the court.
