Meek Mill Sentenced to House Arrest After Violating Probation

Music News

Rapper Meek Mill was sentenced to at minimum 90 days of house arrest where he will be required to wear an ankle bracelet following violating his probation, TMZ reports.

During the 90 days, Mill will not be allowed to work unless it is is charitable work for the community. Note, this does not include dissing Drake.

Mill’s girlfriend Nicki Minaj was in court. During that hearing, Meek told the judge, “I’m not a gangsta. I’m not a criminal. I have my queen, Nicki now. I’m trying to do better and feel like I can be the best rapper out there.”

Mill has been on probation since 2009 following a drug and gun conviction. He violated his probation when he left Philadelphia for the AMAs in November without getting written permission from his probation officer. After 90 days, the judge will decide how much longer he will be under house arrest.

Prior to sentencing, Mill donated to Flint, handed out hoagies to the homeless and did arts and crafts with veterans, according to NPR’s Bobby Allyn.
