Meek Mill & His Probation Officer Face Off In Court Dispute

MeekMill

(AllHipHop News) Maybach Music Group member Meek Mill was back in court Friday to address concerns from his probation officer that the Philly born emcee violated the terms of his probation.

Philadelphia probation officer Treas Underwood and Assistant District Attorney Noel A. DeSantis told a judge in a 2-hour hearing that Meek Mill (Robert Williams) left the state of Pennsylvania without filing a travel plan that lists the time, date, address, and phone number for Meek’s exact locations.

Meek’s alleged reluctance to inform his probation officer is a direct violation of a federal law that requires Underwood to know where he is at all times especially if he leaves the city of Philadelphia.

She told the judge that Meek often would not let her know his whereabouts until after he had already arrived.

Meek offered an explanation on why he has not been able to fully comply with sharing his upcoming locations with Underwood beforehand.

“The problem is that I don’t know,” Williams said. “It changes every day.”

He also explained that he doesn’t directly handle his travel plans, and he assigned his attorney, Gary Silver, to pass on that information to Underwood.

Meek also made the case that at the moment it’s better for him to be in his hometown as little as possible.

“My best thing is to stay traveling,” Meek said in the hearing. “Every time I come back to Philadelphia, someone tries to shoot me or get me back in trouble.”

Underwood continued her insistence that it is still solely Meek’s responsibility to contact her with his travel arrangements.

“But you’re supposed to call me,” she told Meek.

Apparently, Meek Mill and Treas Underwood have a combative history. Meek claimed that he and Underwood had known each other from growing up in the same neighborhood in North Philadelphia.

That animosity played out in court as Underwood, Meek, and his attorney continuously interrupted each other.

Common Pleas Court Judge Genece E. Brinkley told the parties involved, “You folks are just going to have to work it out,” and refused to grant Meek a new probation officer.

Meek Mill started his 5-year probation sentence in 2009 after serving eight months for a drug and gun conviction.
