Kevin Hart and Philadelphia 76ers co-owner Michael Rubin went to see Meek Mill in jail today. Shortly after, or maybe even during his visit, Kevin Hart put this post on his Instagram page
TMZ (@tmz) also reported about Meek’s pending release, and said that Meek would be freed within the hour. The wait is likely because he’s currently being processed out of the system which sometimes can take a little minute.
Meek was brought down to a Philadelphia jail, (not sure which one), from his prison for hearings on his prison sentence. Meek’s sentencing judge Grenece Brinkley’s 2-4 year prison sentence was overruled by the PA Supreme Court. This comes a week after prosecutors asked the judge to toss out Meek’s conviction because even prosecutors found the charge unjust. Brinkley refused to grant Meek a bail while his case was being heard by the Supreme Court. Meek gave TMZ a statement from lockup
“I’d like to thank God, my family, my friends, my attorneys, my team, at Roc Nation including Jay-Z, Desiree Perez, my good friend Michael Rubin, my fans, The Pennsylvania Supreme Court, and all my public advocates for their love, support and encouragement during this difficult time. While the past five months have been a nightmare, the prayers, visits, calls, letters and rallies have helped me stay positive.”
“To the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office, I’m grateful for your commitment to justice, not only in this case, but for others that have been wrongfully jailed due to police misconduct. Although I’m blessed to have the resources to to fight this unjust situation, I understand that many people of color across the country don’t have that luxury and I plan to use my platform to shine light on those issues. In the meantime, I plan to work closely with my legal team to overturn this unwarranted conviction and look forward to reuniting with my family and resuming my music career.”
