Meek Mill will remain to be incarcerated until at least October 11, 2014. The Philadelphia rapper pleaded to be released from jail, on Monday August 18, 2014; so that he could continue with his music career and be able to support his son and others as well.
Even though the rapper begged, the judge who sentenced him on a parole violation last month was unmoved. Instead, she ordered that Meek takes anger management classes and a parenting class.
Meek Mill has been on probation for about five years, and has not been accused of committing any crimes throughout that time. Yet, he failed a drug test in 2014 and appeared with a gun in a music video last year. Mill’s attorney claims that Meek had a prescription for the OxyContin after an injury and that the weapon used in the video was a water pistol, not an actual gun.
The rapper was reportedly incarcerated because of his behavior while on probation and was sentenced three-to-six months in jail.
What do you think? Was the judge right to have sentenced Meek Mill? Or has he done his time?
