Meek Mill Sentenced to 2-4 Years in Prison for Probation Violation

Posted November 08, 2017

On Monday, a Philadelphia judge sentenced Meek Mill to spend two to four years in state prison for violating probation he was put on following a drug and weapons conviction in 2008.

When asked if he planned on appealing the sentence, Brian McMonagle, Meek Mill's defense attorney, responded, "You're goddamned right I am".

The rapper, a 30-year-old Philadelphia native, was convicted in 2008 on charges related to the possession of guns and drugs, and served eight months in prison.

The sentence drew outrage from several fellow African American celebrities, who said the prison time was disproportionate.

As she delivered her sentence she told the rapper, 'I'll be done with you'.

"The sentence handed down by the Judge - against the recommendation of the Assistant District Attorney and Probation Officer - is unjust and heavy handed", he wrote on Facebook. Those charges were dropped after Meek agreed to undertake community service, but just being arrested opened Meek to charges of violating his parole. It's the multiple arrests themselves that were considered probation violations. The judge also cited the rapper's repeated scheduling of concerts in areas where she had barred him from performing. But the judge insisted, saying that she had been trying to help him for about a decade and he refused, insisting on doing whatever he wanted.

In August, the rapper, whose real name is Robert Rihmeek William, was charged with reckless endangerment for illegally riding his dirt bike in Inwood.

The sentence came as a surprise after prosecutors recommended Mill not be imprisoned for the probation violations, noting he's been off drugs since January and has complied with most requirements of probation.
