Meek Mill To Stay Locked Up Until September
The rapper has been in jail since July 11 after violating the terms of probation rooted in a 2009 gun conviction.
The judge rejected a request to have an emergency hearing that was an effort to get the 27-year-old rapper out of jail.
“All I’m asking for is a hearing to learn why [his jailing] is constitutional and they won’t even give me that,” Meeks lawyer, Christopher Warren, said yesterday. “The last thing I want to do is go running to another judge to tell another judge what to do. But we have no choice,”
Meek will have to file a request through his lawyers that will have the court go to a higher level judge to override the original judge’s deception.
Defense lawyers for Meek intend to argue that Meek didn’t receive advance notice of the previous infractions.
