Meek Mill could be released from a Philadelphia prison earlier than expected. According to reports, prosecutors said that they are not against allowing the hip-hop star to appeal his probation violation sentence from outside a prison.
He’s been locked up since November of last year when Philadelphia Judge Genece E. Brinkley sentenced the 30-year-old rapper to two-to-four years in prison over violations having to do with a nearly decade-old case.
Meek’s mother, Kathy Williams, also expressed her gratitude for the recent development.
She said: “I would like to thank the Philadelphia District Attorney’s office for carefully evaluating my son’s matter and not opposing the request for bail,” Williams added. “The fact that Robert’s entire conviction could be overturned is a blessing and I pray that God gives Judge [Genece] Brinkley the wisdom to make the right decision and allow my son to return home to his family. I truly believe justice will prevail.”
The Wins & Losses rapper was sentenced on November 6, 2017. Since then, Judge Brinkley’s ethics and conduct have been called into question many times.
