Meek Mill Appeals His Prison Sentence
Meek Mill files documents to be released from prison.
After receiving a harsh sentence of 2 to 4 years in prison for violating his probation, Meek Mill is asking for an immediate release from jail. On Wednesday, Meek’s lawyer, Joe Tacopina, confirmed to Billboard that the Philadelphia rapper is filing a motion to be released from prison.
Meek is also asking that he be taken off of probation. TMZ reports that Meek said his probation should be wiped out altogether because he’s matured, become a responsible father, acquired a profession and “generally been rehabilitated.”
Earlier this week, Tacopina filed legal documents requesting Judge Genece Brinkley to be removed from Meek’s case due to inappropriate conduct. Tacopina says Brinkley is obsessed with Meek Mill and has a personal vendetta against him.
Tacopina pointed out the time Brinkley popped up at Meek’s community service site, which is unusual for a judge to do. She also asked Meek to remake a Boys II Men song and shout her out.
Meek Mill is also requesting to be granted time served.
