Meek Mill Found Guilty Of Violating His Probation And Could Face Return To Prison

Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill

A judge has found rapper Meek Mill guilty of violating his probation, stemming from a 2008 weapons and drugs charges. Mill, born Robert Williams, dates rapper Nicki Minaj, who testified in court on his behalf last week at a probation hearing. Mill has repeatedly violated his probation over the past few years, in conduct that already sent him back to prison in 2013 for 5-months. 

Mill was again released and sentenced to probation, but violated it not long after via leaving town without the permission of the court to perform at rap concerts, when the court order specifically stated he was to stay within the southern portion of the state of Pennsylvania. Mill also submitted a diluted urine sample to the court during testing, which the lab interpreted as trying to hide drug use forbidden by the court. Mill is managed by Roc Nation, owned by convicted felon, rapper and copyright thief, Jay Z.

At the end of the day, one must follow probation guidelines or risk being incarcerated again. Mill continues to do drugs, rather than go to rehab and deliberately violated the court's orders in another manner, by leaving the state to perform shows. Mill cited the need to earn money. However, in his particular case, his girlfriend and former fiancée, Minaj has money. Could she not have loaned him some cash until the completion of his probation, where he would be able to do shows again.
Side Bar: Do you think the judge is a Drake fan (LOL).

Common Pleas Court Judge Genece E. Brinkley hinted that the North Philadelphia rapper's next out-of-town tour - after he is sentenced Feb. 5 - could be state prison.

"I bent over backward to give him every opportunity to grow his career," Brinkley told defense lawyer Frank DeSimone at the end of the 51/2-hour virtually nonstop hearing. Mill - born Robert Williams - and a courtroom packed with his supporters and entourage, including superstar girlfriend Nicki Minaj, seemed stunned by the judge's words...
