“Philadelphia rapper Meek Mill is behind bars Friday night. Mill, seen in video at the scene of last weekend’s deadly fire in Southwest Philadelphia, will spend three to six months behind bars after violating his probation. He’s in custody right now. Prosecutors say they were concerned about a number of recent incidents with Mill, including posting a photo of himself with a gun.” (My Fox Philly)
Meek and his legal team tried for almost four hours to try and convince the judge not to lock him up, but the judge was not having it.
“The Philadelphia-born Mill, whose real name is Robert Williams, and his lawyer Gary Silver, tried for almost four hours to convince Brinkley not to send him back to prison. Mill, 27, said his rising career in hip hop has supported him, his mother, sister and son and other friends and placed his monthly expenses at $80,000 to $90,000. “It took me 15 years to get here and this will be extremely damaging to my life,” Mill told the judge.” (Philly)
