Meek Mill Gets 3 Months House Arrest For Parole Violation!
A Philadelphia judge is giving Robert Williams at least three months to earn back his status as rapper Meek Mill.
Common Pleas Judge Genece Brinkley on Friday ordered Mill to serve 90 days on house arrest, effective March 1, for violating the terms of his parole in a 2009 drug and gun case. While the judge’s sentence keeps him out of jail, his career will remain on hold, as he won’t be able to return to rapping until June at the earliest.
Mill, 28, was found in violation of his parole in December. He blamed his erratic concert schedule, but Philadelphia prosecutors linked the problem to his romance with Nicki Minaj, who sat in the front row for Friday’s hearing.
Mill’s defense team again presented a parade of witnesses during a four-hour hearing prior to the sentencing who spoke of the more than two dozen community service events he has done around the city in recent weeks while awaiting his fate. Also in that time, Mill has hired a life coach, who told the judge on Friday that she is already seeing a change in the person she first met as an immature 18-year-old.
