Meek Mill Sentenced to 2-4 Years in Prison for Violating Probation

Meek Mill's lawyer say they'll appeal against the sentencing.
At a hearing on Monday, Judge Genece E Brinkley ordered a prison term of two to four years in the long-running case, with eligibility for parole after two years.
The rapper, a 30-year-old Philadelphia native, was convicted in 2008 on charges related to the possession of guns and drugs, and served eight months in prison.
Jay-Z, 47, isn't the only star to come to the "Whatever You Need" rapper's defence, as actor Kevin Hart said he was "praying" for his close pal. He was released in 2009 with a five-year probation agreement.
Nevertheless, the act of being arrested exposed him to the possibility of being found in violation of his original probation out of Philadelphia.
Brinkley cited the reasons behind her decision which were a failed drug test and Mill's failure to comply with a court order restricting his travel. He was arrested again in August 2017 for reckless driving and reckless endangerment, stemming from a dirt bike stunt filmed in New York City.
Taking to Facebook, 'The Story of O.J.' rapper wrote: "The sentence handed down by the Judge - against the recommendation of the Assistant District Attorney and Probation Officer - is unjust and heavy handed".
Prior to that, he was also arrested in March for a fight in an airport; however those charges were dropped after he agreed to perform community service for the Veterans Association in Philadelphia.
However, Judge Brinkley is reported to have said that she's been trying to help Meek Mill for 10 years but the rapper does what he wants. Most recently, in February 2016, Meek Mill was put on house arrest for 90 days after another probation violation.
But he downplayed the significance of the meetings, telling the Times he had "a very brief hello to a couple of people". Sessions made similar denials in two subsequent hearings before Congress on Russian Federation since taking office.

Florida State is at least the third university this year to suspend Greek Life, behind Pennsylvania State and Louisiana State. Following the recent death of a fraternity pledge , Florida State University has banned all fraternities and sororities.
Sessions replied, "I have not seen anything that would indicate collusion with Russians to impact the campaign". And whether it becomes a problem for him or not may just depend on President Trump and also on Congress.
