Sentencing In Meek Mill Probation Case Astounds Legal Experts
Meek Mill received 2-4 year sentence this Monday for a violation of the terms of his probation and the decision has figures in both the rap and legal communities angry and confused. Mill’s attorney believes that the judge that delivered the sentencing was unfit for the trial due to personal reasons between her and the rapper, including showing up to his community service and requesting the re-recording of a track with a personal nod to her included.
Described as inappropriate, his attorney also claims the judge suggested Mill leave his management company and sign locally. Other lawyers described the judge’s actions as ‘wildly disproportionate, bizarre, and illegal.’ The judge in question revealed a failed drug test, failure to comply with a court order, and two other arrests as the logic behind her decision, although it is noteworthy that the prosecutor in the last two cases spoke against Mill’s imprisonment.
Notable figures in the rap community such as T.I and Jay-Z came to Mill’s relief, with the former wishing him the best and advising him to keep his head up while the latter described the judge’s ruling as “unjust and heavy handed.”
