Meek Mill Can’t Leave Philadelphia While Out on Bail
Meek Mill might be home, but he still has to follow some strict rules from the court even outside of prison. The Wins & Losses rapper is reportedly not allowed to leave Philadelphia County while he is out on bail, according to The Blast.
The outlet obtained court documents connected to Meek's case, which revealed that the judge has ordered him to stay in Philadelphia County until his next hearing on June 18. He is also ordered to be supervised by the Probation and Parole Department.
“Pursuant to this same Order,” the document states, “this Court ORDERS that Defendant reside in Philadelphia County, be supervised by the Philadelphia County Adult Probation and Parole Department, and shall report to the Philadelphia County Adult Probation and Parole Department within 24 hours of the date of this Order.”
If Meek desires to leave Philly, he must petition to do so, but there's no guarantee that it will be approved by the court.
The Pennsylvania hitmaker was released earlier this week (April 24) after the Supreme Court overruled Judge Genece Brinkley's decision to not grant him bail. He and his legal team are still working to appeal his convictions after he was sentenced to two to four years in prison back in November. At the time, he was found guilty of violating his probation after being arrested for reckless driving in NYC amongst other charges.
Since his release, Meek has stated that he wants to use his freedom to work towards justice reform as well as lobby for incarcerated minorities who are in similar legal situations.
