Rap­per Mill re­mains in jail

Regina Leader-Post - - YOU -

Rap­per Meek Mill’s drug and gun con­vic­tions should be thrown out and he should be granted a new trial, pros­e­cu­tors said in court Mon­day in an an­nounce­ment that led his sup­port­ers out­side to break into an im­promptu dance party. Judge Genece Brink­ley re­fused to free him on bail but sched­uled an­other hear­ing in June. Mill was sen­tenced in Novem­ber to two to four years in prison for vi­o­lat­ing pro­ba­tion on a roughly decade-old gun and drug case. The cred­i­bil­ity of the ar­rest­ing of­fi­cer in the case was re­cently im­pugned. Lawyer Brian Mc­Mona­gle said they will pe­ti­tion a higher court to get their client re­leased.
