Meek Mill Sentenced To 2-4 Years In Prison After Violating Probation
Meek Mill heading back to jail.
A few days a go, news broke that Meek Mill would be possibly facing jail time after violating probation. He went to court earlier today and now, it’s looking like he’ll be facing between 2-4 years in jail.
Meek Mill’s recent slew of arrests isn’t getting past the judge, as he sentenced the rapper to a minimum of two years behind bars, according to TMZ. The rapper went to court earlier today in Philadelphia to deal with probation violations stemming from his 2009 case for drugs and weapons possessions.
The violations were a product of his reckless driving arrest in New York City where he was booked after he was caught popping wheelies on his dirt bike. He violated probation again for his involvement in a fight at a St. Louis airport earlier this year. He got off lucky with the reckless driving charge, accepting a deal from the District Attorney that said the charge would be wiped clean from his record if he stayed out of trouble for the next six months. The assault charge from the airport was dropped. However, the fact that he violated his probation was the driving force behind his sentence. On top of that, he violated probation in 2015 but was sentenced to house arrest. It’s not looking so good for Meek Mill right now.

Back in March, Meek Mill was arrested for a fight that broke out in an airport at a St. Louis airport. The fight allegedly broke out after an airport employee tried to get a picture with Meek.
He was denied by the rapper and later asked him why he wouldn’t take a picture with a supporter. The comment didn’t sit well with Meek apparently and that’s why the whole altercation began.
Despite his legal troubles, Meek Mill’s had an eventful 2017. The rapper dropped two outstanding EP’s along with an incredible album, Wins And Losses.
Along with that, he’s been giving back to his community. Last week, he kids from a Boys & Girls club in Philly to enjoy a 76ers game and meet some of the players. He announced he’d be starting an initiative to give back to kids in Philadelphia schools.
