As we have said all along, Meek was unjustly convicted and should not have spent a single day in jail,
The rapper's lawyer, Joe Tacopina, said in a statement.
In November 2017, Judge Genece E.Brinkley who has overseen Meek's case sentenced him to two to four years in prions for parole violations, including two arrests in 2016, of which one is for a carefree driving charge while shooting a music video in New York City and the second for a fist fight at a St.Louis airport.
Although I’m blessed to have the resources to fight this unjust situation, I understand that many people of color across the country don’t have that luxury and I plan to use my platform to shine a light on those issues,
Meek Mill said in a statement.
In the meantime, I plan to work closely with my legal team to overturn this unwarranted conviction and look forward to reuniting with my family and resuming my music career.
