Rapper Meek Mill Handed 4 Years Jail Term

Rapper Meek Mill Handed 4 Years Jail Term

Mill's attorney has also claimed, in the wake of the sentence, that the judge in the case asked Mill to shout her out on a song and to leave Roc Nation to sign with her friend's management company, raising suspicions that she was less that impartial.

The 47-year-old star isn't the only celebrity to come to the Whatever You Need rapper's defence.

Brinkley said the "Dreams and Nightmares" rapper failed a drug test and refrained from notifying her of his traveling schedule.

The Wins and Losses rapper's attorney, Joe Tacopina, plans to appeal the ruling, accusing the judge of inappropriate acts. "Got a young man by the name of Meek Mill, he caught a charge when he was like 19 - he's 30 now [and] has been on probation 11 years", he told the crowd. In 2016, he was sentenced to 90 days of house arrest.

Since exploding onto the Hip-Hop scene back in 2011, Meek Mill has had a series of legal issues.

Brinkley, according to media reports from the court room, pointed to violations of parole including scheduling concerts in violation of her orders. "She said, 'I'm serious.' He refused to do that", he said.




The criminal justice system has been a recurring subject for the rapper/mogul this year.

After Monday's hearing and sentencing, McMonagle said he meant to appeal the sentence.

In ending Mill's probation, Brinkley cited technical violations including misdemeanor arrests in New York City and St. Louis and providing a urine specimen that showed he was using the prescription narcotic Percocet. Maybe she's jealous of him. "I'm human. I'm not ideal".

Tacopina told Business Insider that Brinkley showed a "personal stake" in the decision, and he recounted an odd scene that allegedly occurred between Mill, former girlfriend Nicki Minaj, and the judge inside the courtroom chambers in 2013 as an instance of Brinkley's "inappropriateness".

Raised by his mother in Philadelphia after his father was killed, the rapper born as Robert Williams was put on probation after a 2008 arrest on drug and gun possession charges.
