I used to like Brady and the Patriots...not anymore.
Mill was arrested for illegally possessing a firearm and assaulting the police when he was 18 years old. He was put on probation. Since then, he has been arrested four times for parole violation.
In 2008, Mill was convicted of drug dealing and gun possession and was sentenced to 11 to 23 months in prison. Mill was released during the early portion of 2009 under a five-year parole agreement.
In December 2012, Mill was found to have violated his probation and the judge revoked Mill’s travel permit.
In May 2013, Mill was again found to have violated his probation and was ordered to take etiquette classes. The violation was a failure to report travel plans as required and social media postings that resulted in death threats to the judge, Assistant District Attorney (ADA) and probation officer assigned his case. In requiring the classes and stressing the requirement to report travel, the judge noted, “You need to try to get this right next time.” In June 2013, the court noted that Mill continually failed to report his travel plans. The judge established an August deadline for the classes, noting that Mill has “a lot of issues” and that the classes would provide him with a “big-picture perspective” of his personal and professional actions. The judge stated the classes were “more important than any concerts he might have.” Of the requirement to provide travel plans to his probation officer, Mill complained, “You just gonna miss money all day.” The ADA explained that it was a consequence of being on probation. On July 11, 2014, Mill had his probation revoked and he was sentenced to three to six months in jail. He was released from prison on December 2, 2014.
He was found guilty for a parole violation again on December 17, 2015. The judge hearing his case refused to give him another chance and ordered him not to work or perform before his sentencing on February 5, 2016. He was sentenced to 90 days of house arrest on February 5. The sentence became effective from March 1 during which he was not allowed to work and was required to do daily community service with groups serving adults. Additionally, he was also sentenced to six more years of probation. On June 2, 2016, Meek Mill was sentenced to eight additional days of house arrest.His house arrest came to an end in mid-June 2016.
On March 11, 2017, Mill was arrested at a local airport in St. Louis, Missouri for assaulting two pedestrians. Shortly after his arrest and court appearance, he was given a court summons. On November 6, 2017, he was sentenced to two to four years in state prison for violating his parole.
On November 29, 2017, Meek Mill and Roc Nation were sued by the family of Jaquan Graves who was shot and killed in the parking lot outside a Connecticut concert in December 2016. Graves had just left the facility when gunfire started and he was killed. The lawsuit also claimed that Meek and Roc Nation allowed “thugs” to remain on the premises after exhibiting disorderly, disruptive, argumentative, angry and agitated behaviors toward patrons.
An FBI investigation was launched into the conduct of the judge presiding over his case. Meek’s attorney, Joe Tacopina, made several allegations of inappropriate statements and actions from the judge, including that “she requested he re-record a Boyz II Men song and shout her out, and how she wanted him to leave Roc Nation to sign with a friend of hers” and that “She showed up at his community service” when a typical judge would not do that, among several other irregularities.
Reading the last paragraph, I wonder who’s more crazy, Meek Mill or the judge.
He looks like a perfect fit in either the NFL or NBA.
Why would Kraft show support for this guy? I dont understand.
I’m still pissed off at Robert Kraft for sending the Patriots’ team airliner down to Florida in order to fly the Parkland Hitler Youth, their “teachers,” families and others from Florida to the “March for Our Lives” rally in Washington.
Done at the request of gun-grabbers Mark Kelly and Gabby Gifford.
Probably his latest young bimbo squeeze told him to.
Meeks sounds like a complete ass.
