|Meek Mill Is Sentenced To Jail For Violating His Parole|
The rapper was sentenced after being seen at the site of a deadly fire in Philadelphia last weekend, which violated his parole.
Additionally, he reportedly violated his probation from his 2008 arrest for guns and drugs by booking out-of-state shows and changing his number without alerting his probation officer as well as his social media presence
His lawyers filed a petition Thursday asking for the hearing within three days, in hopes of freeing the 27-year-old rapper - whose real name is Robert Williams,but Common Pleas Judge
Genece Brinkley - who sentenced Mill to three to six months behind bars - said her court schedule would not allow her to hold such a hearing until September.
She also rejected a request to allow another judge to hear the case, according to defense attorney Christopher Warren, who, along with Dennis Cogan, is representing Mills.
