Meek Mill has been receiving support from all directions as he fights his current two-to-four year sentencing for violating his probation. The rapper even got a shoutout from an unexpected source at the 2018 Winter Olympics, proving that the #FreeMeekMill movement knows no bounds. Meek and his lawyers have been seeking ways to get the rapper out of jail in a timely manner, and they may have found a loophole as he was arrested by alleged “dirty cop” Reginald Graham back in 2007. The aforementioned policeman reportedly was untruthful in his testimony against Meek Mill and Meek’s lawyers have officially filed a document to vacate his conviction and sentencing, based on these claims.
Meek’s legal team has filed a Post-Conviction Relief Act petition on the basis that Graham was lying during his testimony. A member of the same police team as Graham, Jerold Gibson, claims that he was present during the 2007 arrest and that Graham is not being factual about Meek pointing a gun at anybody. If the charges are not dismissed, Meek’s team is looking for a new trial as they do not believe that Graham’s testimony is credible.
As he was jailed partly on the word of Graham, who is now being questioned on whether his opinion is relevant or not, Meek may be freed soon, which is good news for the rap game and the Philly native. We just hope that this gets resolved in a timely manner and that things are justly concluded for Meek’s sake.
