Meek Mill Can't Leave Philadelphia

AllHipHop Staff

Meek is free, but not all the way. He will learn his fate in June.

(AllHipHop News) Rapper Meek Mill has to remain in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania while out on bail.

The rapper walked free on Tuesday after lawmakers in Philadelphia overturned a judge's decision to keep him locked up for violating his probation linked to a crime he committed in 2008.

Meek will return to court in June, but he has been ordered to remain in Philadelphia County until his next hearing.

However, he can petition court officials to leave the county if he needs to, according to The Blast.

"Pursuant to this same Order, this Court ORDERS that Defendant reside in Philadelphia County, be supervised by the Philadelphia County Adult Probation and Parole Department, and shall report to the Philadelphia County Adult Probation and Parole Department within 24 hours of the date of this Order," the order reads.

Meek's lawyers have been trying to get the rapper's original conviction vacated after it emerged the police officer who arrested him had been named as part of a local corruption scandal - he was accused of lying under oath to put the rapper behind bars.

Judge Genece Brinkley was recently asked to toss Williams' 2008 conviction by prosecutors, but she refused.
