District Attorney: Meek Mill Could Be Released From Prison Soon

Meek Mill will probably be released from prison soon, says Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner

On Wednesday (March 14), the rapper's mother attended a press conference where she gave a tearful plea to the D.A. and asked him to look into her son's controversial sentencing of 2-4 years for probation violation. “I’m begging the D.A. Krasner. Can you please help me out?” Kathy Williams said. “I don’t even understand how he’s been on probation for that many years. It’s like he murdered somebody. He has to beg to see his son. What kind of woman does that? Is she a mother? Do she have a mother?” 

Now, TMZ is reporting that the D.A. believes that Meek probably won't be incarcerated for much longer. "The D.A. filed docs Wednesday saying there's a 'strong showing of likelihood' that Meek's conviction will be reversed due to a police corruption scandal in Philly," the outlet states. "Prosecutors point out hundreds of previous convictions have already been overturned, and they think Meek will follow suit, shortly. As a result, prosecutors see no reason for Meek to be held without bail."

Since Meek was sent back to prison months ago, millions of his fans have protested his sentence. Fellow entertainment and sports figures like Rick Ross, Diddy, DJ Khaled, the Super Bowl LII champs Philadelphia Eagles and more have, as well. The #FreeMeekMill movement even made its way to the 2018 Winter Olympics when a snowboarder wrote the hashtag on his board.
