Meek Mill Sentenced To 2-4 Years In Prison For Probation Violation
Meek Mill has been sentenced to 2-4 years in prison for violating his probation, TMZ reports. Although both cases ended up being dropped, a Philadelphia judge ruled that the rapper’s recent arrests for reckless endangerment and misdemeanor assault constitute a violation of the probation for his 2009 drug and weapons case. Early last year, Meek Mill was placed under house arrest for 90 days for violating his probation.

UPDATE: The AP reports that this hearing was just the latest in a decade-long back-and-forth between Meek Mill and Pleas Judge Genece Brinkley. “I’ve been trying to help you since 2009,” Brinkley said. “You basically thumbed your nose at me.” In response, Meek said that he “may have made a mistake but I never had the intention of disrespecting you.”
