MMG rapper Meek Mill was arrested earlier this month for a probation violation and was sentenced to three to six months in jail. He then filed a request for an emergency hearing with the hope of getting released sooner. His request was denied and it looks like Meek will be in custody until at least September. No more IG posts from him for a while. Get the details below!
So much for definitely getting out before the release of his sophomore album Dreams Worth More Than Money (which is scheduled to drop September 9th).
The 27-year-old rapper was jailed by Common Pleas Judge Genece Brinkley on July 11th for violating the terms of his probation, stemming from a 2009 drug and gun conviction. He was sentened to three to six months in jail.
According to Philly.com,
Brinkley said the rapper failed to provide his probation officer with a working phone number, used his Twitter account to disparage the officer and the prosecutor assigned to the case, booked out-of-town concerts without court permission, was “combative” and “disrespectful” to probation-office staffers and posed for a picture posted on Instagram holding a gun.
Judge Brinkley reportedly denied his request due to her schedule not allowing her to preside over such a hearing until September. She also rejected a request for another judge to oversee the case. Bloop.
On Monday, Meek’s attorney plans to file another request asking a higher court to override Judge Brinkley’s decision and force her to hold an emergency hearing. Good luck with that.
