Meek Mill's Retrial Date Pushed Back After Latest Court Hearing

The rapper will still have to contend with a new judge.

(AllHipHop News) Meek Mill has thanked fans for their support after his retrial was pushed back to allow his lawyer more time to prepare.

Meek's 2007 drug and gun arrest and sentencing was overturned last month after it was discovered the police officer who testified against him bent the rules.

Judge Leon Tucker agreed to push back the 32-year-old rapper's court date to August 27 and, while Meek - real name Robert Rihmeek Williams - didn't make an official statement when leaving the courthouse at the advisement of his attorney, he made sure to thank his supporters on social media following the proceedings.

"I want to thank all my supporters and the Philly media for coming out to my hearing! Although I wanted to personally address you this morning, my attorneys advised me not to comment about my case at this time," Meek said in a statement. "What I can say is that I appreciate the hometown love and I’m proud to represent the city of Philadelphia in everything I do."
