US Rapper sentenced to 2-4 years in prison for violating probation

A Philadelphia court reportedly ruled that Meek violated probation from his 2009 drug and weapons case among others.

Meek appeared in a Philadelphia court on Monday, November 8, where the judge reportedly ruled that the rapper violated probation from his 2009 drug and weapons case.

In March, Meek, 30, was arrested in St. Louis and charged with misdemeanor assault for an altercation with two airport employees.

According to the judge, the rapper also violated probation when he was arrested for reckless driving in New York City.

Although both cases were dropped, the judge said the arrests alone were violations.

The court consequently jailed Meek for two to four years.

He also violated probation in 2015 but escaped that one after he was placed under house arrest.
