Meek Mill Sentenced to 2-4 Years in Prison for Violating Probation

Meek Mill Sentenced to 2-4 Years in Prison for Violating Probation

And on Monday, a judge came down hard on Mill's previous transgressions, giving the rapper a two-to-four year prison sentence for violating the probation terms of his 2008 drug charge.

JAY-Z has commented on the jail sentence given to rapper Meek Mill, calling it "unjust and heavy handed".

He was sentenced between 11 and 23 months in prison, but was released in early 2009 under a five-year parole agreement.

Even after Jaguars linebacker Myles Jack flew into the scrum and bowled the two over, Green was still trying to throw haymakers. Green is notoriously quiet and rarely shows emotion, making what happened on Sunday incredibly rare.

After he is shipped off to state prison, she said, "I'll be done with you". As a result, he was sentenced to spend three to six months in prison.

He's been on probation ever since and was arrested in March after a fight in an airport and again in August for reckless driving, but both charges were dropped.

The Associated Press reports that Philadelphia based judge, Judge Genece Brinkley, cited a failed drug test and a failure to comply with a court order restricting his travel.

Despite all this, it is worth mentioning that Newton did enjoy his MVP season in 2015 with Benjamin sidelined for the year. In exchange for the 6-foot-5 pass catcher, the Panthers receive a 2018 third- and seventh-round pick.

"The sentence handed down by the Judge - against the recommendation of the Assistant District Attorney and Probation Officer - is unjust and heavy handed", Jay-Z wrote on Facebook yesterday (November 6th 2017).

Sheriff's deputies immediately hauled him away in handcuffs.

The Philadelphia-born rapper born Robert Williams was on a probation for a 2008 gun charge when he was 18. In explaining her decision, an exasperated Brinkley recounted for the 30-year-old hip-hop artist the number of chances she had given him over the years and said he had been "just thumbing your nose at me". It's the multiple arrests themselves that were considered probation violations.

Democratic lawmakers mostly stayed out of the Sunday fray after a week in which Clinton's 2016 campaign came under fresh scrutiny. Clinton has said Comey's letter to Congress on the issue tilted the race to Trump.

Mill, who previously dated Nicki Minaj, also violated his probation in 2015 after leaving the state of Pennsylvania for a gig without getting approval from the court.
