Meek Mill sentenced to 2 to 4 years for probation violations

Posted November 08, 2017

Rapper Meek Mill has been sentenced to minimum two years for violating probation.

When asked if he planned on appealing the sentence, Brian McMonagle, Meek Mill's defense attorney, responded, "You're goddamned right I am".

A judge handed down the heavy sentencing on Monday after ruling that Meek Mill violated his probation when he got arrested twice this year.

The rapper, a 30-year-old Philadelphia native, was convicted in 2008 on charges related to the possession of guns and drugs, and served eight months in prison.

A number of celebrities have reacted to Meek Mill's prison sentence on social media, including Jay-Z and Kevin Hart.

Meek Mill's (semi) luck with the law has run out.

Common Pleas judge Genece Brinkley cited a failed drugs test and failure to comply with restrictions on his travel as reasons for his sentencing.

Jay-Z, who's Roc Nation company represents Meek Mill, called his punishment "unjust and heavy handed". To many, the sentence seemed stiff, especially considering the violation came as a result of two arrests for crimes that he was eventually acquitted for, and the parole was for a crime that occurred nearly a decade ago.

Mill pleaded guilty in October in Manhattan to reckless driving charges after he was arrested for doing wheelies and other stunts on a dirt bike on city streets and then posting video about it online. But if Meek Mill actually spends years in prison over a probation violation stemming from a case from 2008, anyone paying attention will have a lot to scream about.

However, that same year he was found to have violated his probation for the first time, and was placed on house arrest.
