At Last! American rapper Meek Mill released from prison, leaves in helicopter

At Last! American rapper Meek Mill released from prison, leaves in helicopter

Rapper Meek Mill, who had been incarcerated for five months on a probation violation, was released from a Pennsylvania jail on Tuesday, his attorney said, after the state's top court granted him bail, capping a star-laden campaign to have him freed.

The audience cheered as Meek entered the arena, before he was greeted by fans, including Kevin Hart.

The Supreme Court of Pennsylvania ruled today that Mill, née Robert Williams, be released on bail because of questions raised by the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office regarding the credibility of Reginald Graham, the police officer who arrested Mill in 2007.

Mill's sentencing in November for violating his probation prompted waves of protest from his fans in Philadelphia and drew support from celebrities who argued he had become just another example of how the criminal justice system in the US unfairly targets black people.

Meek spoke to TMZ and thanked God, his family, friends, attorneys, his fans and team at Roc Nation "including Jay-Z" after his release.




"While the past five months have been a nightmare, the prayers, visits, calls, letters and rallies have helped me stay positive", he added.

"When he was in jail, I went to visit him", Embiid told reporters.

Mill thanked his team in a series of tweets and said he looked forward to continuing his musical career. The rapper rang the ceremonial Liberty Bell ahead of the game as the 76ers faced the Miami heat in Game 5. She said the court "has impartially and without prejudice presided over numerous proceedings in this matter since 2008".

They said in a statement: "We are pleased with the Supreme Court's decision to grant Meek Mill bail and allow him to return home to his loved ones". During a hearing last Monday, prosecutors overseeing Mill's case recommended granting the rapper a new trial based on what they say is Graham's history of corruption. "As we have said all along, Meek was unjustly convicted and should not have spent a single day in jail", Tacopina said. Hart, who reportedly saw the rapper just hours before the big announcement was made, shared a photo of them sitting court side at an National Basketball Association game on Instagram. A spokesman for the prosecutor's office said in an emailed statement that the Supreme Court's ruling was consistent with the office's position in the case.
