Meek Mill Out Solitary Confinement Bail Hearing Canceled
Meek Mill was relieved from solitary confinement but his planned bail hearing was revoked.
Earlier this week, Meek Mill’s attorney filed legal docs asking for the rapper to be taken out of solitary confinement and place with the general population of the local state prison he is being housed. In his legal docs, the rapper argued that he is in solitary confinement for 23 hours per day and that can be detrimental his human psyche and bad for his creativity and active lifestyle. Authorities say they put him there to protect him from the rest of the prison inmates, but Meek says that he will be respected because of his celebrity status and his work in the community.
Meek Mill was moved subsequently moved to another prison all entirely, TMZ reported. In that undisclosed prison, he was placed with the general population so that he can workout and exercise his creativity (writing music). The Philly rapper also has his own cell so he is not sharing a cell with another inmate who would want to do him harm. In that prison, Meek will also be assigned a job to do that usually pats gun 19 cents an hour. That job can be something like cleaning prison cells and cooking in the kitchen.
Meek Mill bail hearing canceled done in error.
The Dreamchasers rapper is now disappointed that his planned bail hearing has been canceled because it was done in error. On Friday, news surfaced online that Meek Mill will be in front of Judge Genece Brinkley for a bail hearing set for November 27.
According to Billboard, the bail hearing was “canceled due to an administrative error.” Meek’s attorney, Joe Tacopina, confirmed late yesterday that the bail hearing has been canceled, but there is no word yet on when or if he will get another bail hearing. Tocopina has filed a motion to have Judge Brinkley recused from further ruling on the case and he wants his client’s probation revoked and for him to be released from prison.
The Philadelphia District Attorney supports the bail motion and also recommended no jail time for the rapper in the first place, but the judge ignored that recommendation and handed down a 2-4 years prison sentence.
