Details on; Meek Mill Sentenced To 3-6 Months In Prison
Maybach Music rapper, Meek Mill is headed to prison for three to six months after violating probation stemming from a 2009 drug and gun case. The rapper (born Robert Williams) was taken into custody and transported to the city prison complex in Northeast Philadelphia after a judge handed down the sentence.
Court Judge Genece E. Brinkley had reportedly reached her limit with Meek after the MMG rapper booked concerts between July 11 and August 11, despite her order that he cut back on scheduling shows during that time to resolve his ongoing probation issues.
“Sir, I didn’t want to do this but you made me do this,” Judge Brinkley told Meek in court. “After all the years I tried to get you on the right track.”
The Philly MC and his lawyer Gary Silver tried unsuccessfully to convince Brinkley not to send him back to prison, arguing that the interruption would destroy the momentum he’s built in his budding rap career.
