Philly D.A. Gives Official Approval for Meek Mill’s Release From Prison
Meek Mill is one step closer to getting out of prison because the District Attorney in Philadelphia is officially giving his blessing to free the rapper on bail.
According to a filing obtained by The Blast, Philly D.A. Larry Krasner “does not oppose defendant’s application to the extent he requests release on bail pending the current proceedings, but opposes all other requested relief at this time.”
Earlier this week, the judge in Meek’s case denied the rapper bail and ordered that he be kept behind bars, but it’s huge for Meek that the D.A. is supporting him in his bid for freedom.
Sources close to Meek’s case tell us it’s now up to the Supreme Court to make a decision on whether he can post bail while he’s appealing the 2-4 year sentence for a probation violation.
Meek’s attorney, Joe Tacopina, tells The Blast, “We are encouraged by the Philadelphia District Attorney’s steadfast stance in not opposing Meek Mill’s release on bail at the Pennsylvania Supreme Court level while the current legal proceedings continue, even in light of Judge Brinkley’s vindictive and erroneous decision.”
Ever since Meek has been in custody, he’s had incredible support from stars like Jay-Z, Rick Ross and even the Philadelphia Eagles.
