Philly Rapper Meek Mill Headed Back to Prison

Philly rapper Meek Mill has been sentenced to 2-4 years in state prison for parole violation. The news broke via Billboard after both Meek’s Parole Officer and the Assitant DA recommended that the rapper not serve any more prison time. However, Common Pleas Judge Genece Brinkley of Philadelphia cited a failed drug test and reckless behavior in St. Louis and New York, as well as violating house arrest by traveling outside of Pennsylvania without court permission in 2015 as the reasons why he handed down the sentence. The original offenses that got Meek Mill probation were gun and drug-related, which occurred back in 2008 and resulted in 8 months behind bars. Friends including Kevin Hart and Jay-Z commented on the seemingly unfair treatment of Meek Mill via Instagram and Facebook. It does seem ridiculous that the judge decided to throw the book at Meek Mill given the progress he has made.  Eagles Wide Receiver Torrey Smith took to Twitter and tweeted, “More proof that our criminal justice system is a joke… Throwing folks in jail for 2-4 years for misdemeanor violations is just a waste of money”. This situation has the smell of a vendetta held by the judge against Meek Mill and the sentence speaks to a personal grudge more than actual justice being served. Meek’s lawyer plans to appeal the arguably unfair decision.
