Meek Mill Is Going Back To Jail!

Meek Mill sentenced to minimum two years prison for violating probation

Meek Mill sentenced to minimum two years prison for violating probation

Photo A Philadelphia judge on Monday sentenced the rapper Meek Mill to two to four years in prison. (TMZ)Rapper Meek Mill arrives for court at the Criminal Justice Center with his lawyer Brian McMonagle in Philly.

The 30-year-old rapper, who was already under probation for a drug and weapons case, was arrested twice this year.

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

Meek Mill has not released an official statement regarding the recent news. He spent a few months in jail and was released early.

Despite the charges being dropped, the judge ruled the arrests were violations of his probation.

27 dead in Texas church shooting
It was unclear whether the shooter died from a police bullet or at his own hand, as per media reports . Contacted by Al Jazeera, the Wilson County sheriff was not immediately available for comment.

Meek appeared in court in Philadelphia on November 6 for two recent arrests: one for getting into a fight at an airport in St. Louis, and one for recklessly driving a motorcycle through the streets of NYC. Since then prosecutors say Mill has violated parole by repeatedly changing his court-approved travel schedule and ducking a drug test.

His troubles stem from a pre-fame conviction for drug dealing and gun possession back in 2008.

"The sentence handed down by the Judge - against the recommendation of the Assistant District Attorney and Probation Officer - is unjust and heavy handed". The judge confessed that she had been trying to help the rapper for about a decade but Mill appears to do what he wants to do, reports said.

In October, he pleaded guilty in Manhattan to reckless driving charges after he was arrested for carrying out stunts on a dirt bike on city streets.

In 2016, Mill was ordered to serve 90 days on house arrest for violating the terms of his parole.
