Meek Mill was sentenced to 3 – 6 months in county jail today (July 11) for violating his probation. According to published reports, the local DA was “worried about his behavior while on probation.” The probation stems from a 2009 drug and gun case.
“Sir, I didn’t want to do this but you made me do this,” said Philadelphia Common Pleas Court Judge Genece E. Brinkley. “After all the years I tried to get you on the right track.”
It’s not clear when Meek will have to begin serving this sentence or if he will ultimately appeal, but there is a chance he could be in jail when his upcoming album, Dreams Worth More Than Money, is released in September. Stay tuned for more details when they become available.
