Pressure On Meek Mill's Judge As Governor Proclaims Support For Rapper

Meek has support at the highest levels of government in Pennsylvania. Will it be enough?

(AllHipHop News) Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf has thrown Meek Mill a lifeline as he fights for his freedom after revealing he supports a campaign to release the jailed rapper.

Judge Genece E. Brinkley sentenced the "Ima Boss" hitmaker, who previously dated Nicki Minaj, to two to four years behind bars in November.

Meek, real name Robert Rihmeek Williams, was sentenced for his involvement in a fight at a St. Louis, Missouri airport and for reckless driving in New York.

The judge ruled both violated his probation in connection to a 2008 firearms offense.

As the rap star's lawyers continue to fight for his freedom, Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner recently stated he would be "unopposed" to Mill's release, and now Wolf has given the idea his blessing, stating: "I support D.A. Larry Krasner’s position in the case of Robert Williams (Meek Mill).

"Our criminal justice system is in need of repair. That's why my admin has made efforts to invest in programs that divert individuals from the system, improve public safety and promote fairness. But more needs to be done. I am calling on the PA General Assembly to pass the Justice Reinvestment II reforms to the criminal justice system, which help address issues from arrest, trial, sentencing, incarceration, to post-release."

Mill's lawyers have launched a bid to Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court to secure their client's bail and his legal representatives filed paperwork last week requesting his immediate release.

Despite the unfairness of the systems, Meek stupidly makes him deserving of the current result.


I know a lot of people were wondering why Meek was getting so much attention for shyt that average people go through everyday. Hopefully now you know why, his celbrity status has highlighted his dealings with this crooked system, because he is famous, people are paying attention and are not so eager to go about business as usual..everyone except the judge but that's another post for another day!!
