Meek Mill To Have Status Hearing Today; Supporters To Rally Outside CJC

Meek Mill

Add the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office to those in favor of rapper Meek Mill getting a new trial. The district attorney's announcement came during a hearing, but the judge is still refusing to release Mill on bail.

Mill, who was not in court, has been behind bars since early November after Common Pleas Court Judge Genece Brinkley sentenced him to 2-4 years in prison for violating his probation.

Meek Mill's mother, grandmother and 6-year-old son, Papi, were on hand at the rally outside the courthouse, which erupted into cheers after the district attorney's announcement.

Mill is now serving a two- to four-year prison sentence for violating his parole stemming from a gun and drugs charge back in 2008.

Meek Mill's lawyer has said that they will appeal to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.

Last week, Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney went to the state prison in Chester to visit Meek Mill.

"Now, the fact that he's not out on bail is even more egregious and more outrageous, because the District Attorney's Office just agreed that this conviction should be overturned", said Tacopina. The sentence sparked backlash not only because many saw it as being too harsh but because the judge acted against the recommendations of the prosecution and Mill's probation officer.

Brinkley denied a request to release Mill immediately during his status hearing.

What's it going to take for Meek Mill to get a fair shot?
