Rapper Meek Mill: Sentenced To 3-6 Months After Parole Violation
Meek has been on probation from a 2008 drug and gun conviction. The rapper was sentenced 11 to 23 months in prison in 2008, but only served eight months. He began five years probation in 2009. He’ll now spend 3-6 more months in jail for violating his parole from a previous conviction, according to TMZ.
Prosecutors became wary over recent incidents with Meek, including Meek posting a picture of himself holding a gun, Philadelphia’s FOX 29 says in a report. The rapper also scheduled concerts without getting approval first — and even changed his cell phone number, according to TMZ. The rapper is reportedly in custody right now.
Those in Meek’s camp claim the District Attorney has a vendetta against the rapper and he’s been unfairly targeted.
