While Meek Mill’s freedom hangs in the balance, news emerged that the embattled rapper won a small victory of sorts. TMZ reports Meek has been transferred from The State Correctional Institution at Camp Hill to a different facility.
“An official at the State Correctional Institution in Chester, PA tells TMZ ... the rapper was just transferred to their prison and out of Camp Hill,” TMZ reported, citing unnamed sources. “He’s now in general population and he has his own cell.”
The State Correctional Institution in Chester is classified as a medium security facility, and the move to a different prison takes Mill roughly 120 miles west. Perhaps more importantly, the transfer takes Meek out of solitary, a change his team lobbied for after arguing that solitary confinement can “wreak havoc on a person’s mental state.”
The move to Chester is the latest twist in Meek’s ongoing legal drama, as Meek was reportedly denied a bail hearing Friday, as that hearing was allegedly canceled due to an administrative error.
As it currently stands, Meek is sentenced to two-to-four years for a probation violation originally stemming from a 2008 conviction for gun and drug charges. Meanwhile, authorities are said to be investigating the judge who handed down the sentence, amid allegations that she has a personal vendetta against Meek for refusing to mention her in a song and sign a management deal with Charlie “Mack” Alston.
