Meek Mill will not get his 2008 conviction – at least not quite.
Philly's lost son went back to court with his legal team Tuesday, where his team attempted to avoid a retrial after the original conviction was dropped. Meek decided to end the battle … because he made a plea.
Meek pleaded guilty to possessing a gun under license – and the remaining six charges for which he was originally convicted were dropped. Already in 2008, Meek was found guilty of seven charges, four of which were related to the weapon.
Meek spoke to the public shortly afterwards, but was not overly talkative. He thanked his followers and those who came out on Tuesday. He said he was no longer on probation and finally free. The D.A. in Philly has confirmed that he is not on probation.
He could have been in court if he wanted – and would most likely have won – but it looks like Meek is trying to get that saga out of the box
As we reported it is unlikely that the case would have been put on trial again … considering that the key witness was a dirty cop – and do not mention this would take more than a decade after the alleged crime … and the memories of all other witnesses would be blurry at best.
You Will Remember … Judge Geneek Brinkley sent Meek to prison with a hard sentence of 2 to 4 years after she stated that Meek had violated his parole ] in condemnation 2008. Many people think Judge Brinkley would have found out for him .
He did it about five months before was released .
Meek said at the hearing on Tuesday: "I". I am extremely grateful that my long legal dispute is finally over, and I believe that it has triggered a much needed discussion about the probationary reform and inequalities in our two Americas. "
He added," I've always said it. The truth is, as a teenager who saw many around me dying of pointless gun violence, I was armed with a gun. I take responsibility for it and, in connection with my work on the REFORM Alliance, will continue to use my platform to make communities safer and to reform our criminal justice system. "
Finally Meek can close the book on this subject.
