Meek Mill Pleads Guilty To Misdemeanor Gun Charge To End 12 Year Legal Case | Music News
Meek Mill pleaded guilty this week for a misdemeanour gun charge from a long-running 2007 case of possession of a firearm without license, having been under court supervision for more than a decade. The case ended up in a plea deal, and the US rapper will not have to spendy any additional time in prison, will no longer be on probation and all of his charges in the case have been dropped.
In 2008, the rapper had a conviction on gun and drug charges, resulting in him landing in prison many times in the last decade. The artist was granted a new trial last month, after Reginald Graham, the police officer that arrested Meek in 2007, was found to have given a false testimony in the initial trial in 2008, and as Mill’s lawyers said, he was not a credible witness.
“I’m extremely grateful that my long legal battle is finally behind me and I appreciate that it has sparked a much-needed discussion about probation reform and the inequalities that exist within our two Americas. I have always told the truth —that as a teenager, who saw many around me die from senseless gun violence, I carried a gun for protection”, the rapper declared in a press statement.
