Meek Mill's Lawyers File Documents To Nullify His Sentence

Meek Mill's Lawyers File Documents To Nullify His Sentence

Meek Mill's legal team hope to get the rapper out of jail, stating his sentence was the result of unreliable testimony.

The Ima Boss star was sentenced to two-to-four years behind bars in November (17) for violating his probation relating to a 2008 drug and gun bust. TMZ reports that Mill has filed legal documents asking for his conviction on a 2007 drug possession charge be overturned, arguing that Philadelphia police officer Reginald Graham lied in court.

A secretly compiled list of local officers with a history of lying, racism and brutality was compiled by the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office a year ago.

While the list has not been made public, sources for The Philadelphia Inquirer say it includes Graham. As well, Gibson said that Mill took his gun out of his waistband and discarded it, officers did not need to yell for him to "drop the gun", Graham never took cover behind a parked van and Mill never tried to flee - all of which aligned with Mill's testimony and were contrary to Graham's own claims in court.

He made 6 of his 19 attempts from the field, for a 31.6% field goal percentage (11/12 from the line, 4/13 from three-point range). Bogdan Bogdanovic paced Sacramento with 20 points and five assists while Garrett Temple added 13 points off the bench.

Lawyers for the rapper Meek Mill thinks he should be released from prison after a new report revealed possible police misconduct involving his arresting officer.

"I would steal with Reggie Graham", former officer Jeffrey Walker told the Inquirer.

As he was jailed partly on the word of Graham, who is now being questioned on whether his opinion is relevant or not, Meek may be freed soon, which is good news for the rap game and the Philly native. According to the docs, Graham frequently stole and kept money that was recovered during searches and arrests, beat people who were considered suspects and even admitted to Walker that he beat Meek in 2007 or 2008. He also testified that a confidential informant later make another purchase from Mill, information that was used to obtain a warrant for the search of a home where Meek ultimately was arrested.
