United States judge stuns with prison term for rapper Meek Mill

50 Cent

The sentencing came after Meek was charged with misdemeanor assault following an altercation with employees at St. Louis International Airport back in March. And while fellow rappers like Jay-Z, T.I.

Meek Mill arrives at the criminal justice centre in Philadelphia. On Tuesday (07Nov17), the 99 Problems hitmaker interrupted his concert in Dallas, Texas to rail against the verdict and his peer's new jail sentence. Although both charges were later dropped, the judge said the arrests violated Mill's parole.

Brinkley has worked with Mill since almost a decade ago, when the rapper was convicted and jailed for eight months and later placed on probation in 2008 for gun and drug charges. The rapper - who owns Roc Nation, the company that represents Mill - published a post on Facebook saying, "The sentence handed down by the Judge - against the recommendation of the Assistant District Attorney and Probation Officer - is unjust and heavy handed".

Mariah Carey accused of sexual harassment by former head of security
Mariah Carey is escorted by her ex-security guard Michael Anello at her hotel in London after her concert in Birmingham in 2016. The security chief is reportedly unsatisfied with her team's offer, but his lawyer says the draft lawsuit is now on hold.

Brinkley ruled on Monday (November 6) that the hip-hop star - real name Robert Rihmeek Williams - would be put back behind bars after violating the conditions of his release following a gun and drug case from 2008.

The judged spoke about the several chances she had given Mill, but he 'basically just thumbed your nose at this court'. At the time, he threw himself on the mercy of the court, telling Brinkley, "I'm human, I'm not ideal". I'm here for you man! "He's 30 now. He's been on probation for 11 years". Fucking 11 years. Judge gave him two to four years because he got arrested for being on a bike and popping a fucking wheelie. The rapper could potentially be going away for up to four years, and considering the dubious circumstances surrounding his relationship with the judge, the general consensus is that it's an excessive verdict.

A spokesman for Tacopina, however, said he did not know if a Tacopina had filed a complaint against the judge with the state Judicial Conduct Board, or meant to.
