Meek Mill Sentenced To At Least 2 Years For Probation Violation
It seems like the dream has turned into nightmares for rapper Meek Mill when he was sentenced to time in prison for violating probation. Today we found out his faith, and Meek Mill sentenced to an extended prison sentence. The Meek Mill probation violation is just one of many legal issues the rapper has faced in recent years.
Meek Mill aka Robert Rihmeek Williams, appeared in front a judge on Nov. 6th in Philadelphia where he was sentenced for violating probation. This came after he was arrested twice this year, once in March for an altercation at a St. Louis airport, and another in August for reckless driving in New York. Both cases were later dropped but the judge gave no sympathy towards the rapper. The judge determining both acts as violation of probation and immediately sentencing him to 2 – 4 years in prison.
The sentence came as a surprise after prosecutors recommended Meek not be imprisoned for the probation violations for meeting most of the probation requirements. The Judge, Genece Brinkley, went against the recommendation saying, “I gave you break after break, and you basically just thumbed your nose at this court.” Meek Mill’s lawyer lawyer plans to appeal the ruling.
This year Meek Mill dropped his 3rd studio album, Wins and Losses. A 17 song packed LP with features from Future, Rick Ross, Quavo, Lil Uzi Vert and more. The album gives in a sight in the bumpy years and smooth days he had since fame.
Many celebrities took to social media to show their support for the rapper. Kevin Hart took to his Instagram page posted, “Praying for my brother @meekmill right now. God sometimes puts the toughest battles on his strongest soldiers. I’m here for you man!!!! My brother for life…Always here for you man!!! This storm will pass…Stay strong & keep your head up,” and Nipsey Hussle to to Twitter to write, “To be yung Blac and successful YOU ENEMY NUMBER 1. HOLD YO HEAD @MeekMill the streets chose u”
