Meek Mill denied again by appeals court
He won’t be getting out on bail.
Last month, the Pennsylvania Superior Court denied an emergency bail motion filed by Meek Mill’s lawyer. Yesterday, according to Billboard, it did the same, rejecting a second request to free the 30-year-old rapper on bail.
The move follows another denial for bail made earlier this week by the judge overseeing his case, Genece Brinkley. She, at the time, called Meek a “flight risk” and a “danger to the community.”
Meek’s lawyers have since asked, for the second time, for her to be removed from the case.
According to TMZ, Meek is currently making 19 cents an hour as part of the general labor crew at Pennsylvania’s SCI Chester prison. The site reports that he cleans cell blocks, dishes, and prison grounds, as well as cooks and serves. He also allegedly gets access to electrical and carpentry shops, and is waitlisted for therapy courses.
Meek’s attorneys say they’ll continue their efforts to free him, according to Billboard.
