Meek Mill Facing Almost Two Years in Jail for Probation Violations
About a week ago, Meek Mill earned himself a big W when the assault case against him was dropped. According to TMZ, though, the rapper isn't out of the legal woods yet.
The celebrity gossip site reports that Meek's headed to court Monday (Nov. 6) for a couple of serious probation violations. One of them came from the assault charge he caught at a St. Louis airport about seven months ago. The other is for the reckless driving charge he got while in New York City. He accepted a deal for this charge.
The site says Meek's been walking a punishment tightrope with the judge for a while now. Back in 2015, he skipped out of Pennsylvania for a concert without gaining the judge's permission. For that infraction, the judge put the MMG rapper on house arrest. Considering the seriousness of his most recent charges, there's a chance he faces serious jail time—up to 20 months.
There's no way to know exactly how this situation will play out, but any jail time would definitely be a serious blow for the Philly MC. He's been on a roll over the last year or so, dropping his acclaimed DC4 project, a couple of dope EP's and his powerful Wins & Losses album.
Here's to hoping Meek's able to make it out of this situation on top. XXL has reached out to Meek's rep for comment.
