Meek Mill can consider himself lucky after a judge was merciful enough to spare him prison time for violating the terms of his probation.
Common Pleas Judge Genece Brinkley ordered the Philly rapper to serve 90 days on house arrest, effective March 1, for violating probation for a 2009 drug and gun conviction, according to Billboard.
That’s not all.
Judge Brinkley tacked on another six years of probation for the 28-year-old Dreamchasers boss.
Meek Mill’s hearing lasted four hours. The MMG rapper’s defense team told the judge Meek was involved in more than two dozen community services events around the city in recent weeks.
Meek Mill notably donated 60,000 bottles of waters to Flint, MI amid the city’s water crisis. The charitable donation cost $50,000.
Meek Mill’s three-month house arrest prevents him from touring. The judge ordered Meek Mill to do daily community service with groups serving adults, not young people, according to the Associated Press.
Meek’s house arrest could potentially be extended up to a year depending on his actions.
It could’ve been worse for Meek who was threatened with two years in the state penitentiary.
Meek Mill spent nearly five months in prison in 2014 for violating his probation. He was freed in December 2014 a month ahead of his expected Jan. 11, 2015 release date.
Meek Mill’s actions nearly led to an unfavorable decision.
Meek Mill’s probation terms required him to inform his probation officer of his whereabouts at all times. The Philly rapper traveled to Los Angeles for the American Music Awards without the court’s approval.
Meek Mill was also suspected of submitting cold water for his urine sample. Meek Mill blamed his failed urine sample consumption of protein shakes, TMZ reports.
Meek allegedly took a urine test and handed the lab technician a cup of cold water instead of a urine sample, according to court documents obtained by TMZ. Meek said his urine looked like water because he drank water and protein shakes, adding he’s a bodybuilder.
Meek Mill thanked Judge Brinkley for giving him a chance.
“I just want to ask you for a chance to turn that corner and be a changed man,” he said. “You said you saw something in me … I want to prove you right. I believe I can be the bright star you intended me to be.”
