Meek Mill Turns Himself in for Prison Bid

50 Cent

Tacopina also made that request that Meek Mill leave Roc Nation. The judge has ruled that the rapper will face a whopping 2-4 years in prison for the violations, stemming from a 2008 gun and drug case.

His lawyer, Brian McMonagle, restated the prosecutor's recommendation of no prison sentence back to the judge as Mill emptied his pockets and removed jewelry from his wrists. He also accused Meek Mill of "just thumbing your nose at me" with his repeated violations. Tacopina cited multiple instances of the judge's alleged "personal bias", including asking Mill to record a song dedicated to her. "It is highly unusual for a judge to show up at community service", she says.

In 2016, Mill was ordered to serve 90 days on house arrest for violating the terms of his parole. Though Weisberg has no direct first-hand knowledge of the details of the case, he adds that if Tacopina's claims are true, "this is indeed wildly disproportionate, for the violations - and in any event, the judge's intrusion into the probation and community service is really freakish".

Mill was born and raised in Philadelphia, where he became a key figure in the local hip-hop scene before gaining national recognition.

DeSimone could not be reached for comment and DeSantis said she could not comment because the proceeding was sealed.

Later, Mill reportedly apologized to Brinkley. "A really despicable version of what the justice system is supposed to be". This year, he was arrested for reckless driving in NY and assault in St. Louis. She also cited him and his managers for repeatedly scheduling concerts after her August 17 order barring performances outside Philadelphia and Montgomery Counties. At the time, he threw himself on the mercy of the court, telling Brinkley, "I'm human, I'm not flawless".

One of Mill's attorney's, Joe Tacopina, told Business Insider that his team is gearing up to appeal what he called a "ridiculous" sentence from the court, referencing multiple instances of the judge's alleged "personal bias" in the case.
