Meek Mill's Lawyer Will Fight The Rapper's Prison Sentence

Meek Mill's Lawyer Will Fight The Rapper's Prison Sentence

He was also taken into custody in August (17) for recklessly driving his motorcycle in New York City. Many noted the sentenced seemed harsh because even prosecutors didn't recommend jail time and the charges from the two incidents this year have been dismissed.

But Brinkley says she's been trying to help Mill for about a decade and that he just does whatever he wants.

Speaking to PEOPLE, Mill's lawyer Brian McMonagle said on Tuesday, 'I met with Meek this morning, and he asked me to thank his family, friends, and fans for their love and support'.

A Philly judge sentenced the popular rapper to 2 to 4 years in prison for violating probation in the almost decade-old case.

According to XXL, Pennsylvania's Governor Tom Wolf created a Change.org petition to encourage Judge Genece Brinkley and other public officials responsible for the 30-year-old's two to four-year prison sentence for a probation violation to "reevaluate the charges" brought against him.

"I'm human. I'm not ideal", Mill said to Brinkley in court on Monday, according to a report from Philly.com.

Brinkley has worked with Mill since almost a decade ago, when the rapper was convicted and jailed for eight months and later placed on probation in 2008 for gun and drug charges.

He continued, "We will always stand by and support Meek Mill, both as he attempts to right this wrongful sentence and then in returning to his musical career". "I'm human. I'm not flawless". You gave me the ladder to do what I have to do to prevail in my struggle. Last night, while on stage in Dallas for his 4:44 Tour, Jay halted his show to address the crowd about the sentencing.

In his mugshot from the state prison in Graterford, Montgomery County, Mill is seen in a yellow prison outfit, staring straight at the camera. Another really credible example is she stopped him for violation of probation was when he went to Atlanta for a rehabilitation clinic, without her approval she said.
