Meek Mill is finally a free man.
According to Billboard, prosecutors reached an agreement with the rapper’s team, which was approved by judge Leon Tucker at Tuesday (Aug. 27) morning’s hearing, to bring his 12-year gun case to a close.
Meek reportedly pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor gun charge, and won’t serve additional time in prison after reaching a plea agreement in a case that’s kept him on probation for most of his adult life.
And this negotiated plea comes after an appeals court threw out the 2007 conviction of the 32-year-old rapper last month, after both sides questioned the credibility of the arresting officer. He’d already served about two years in prison in the case, and a judge decided he won’t have to spend any additional time behind bars or on probation.
“I know this has been a long road for you and hopefully this will be the end of it,” Judge Leon Tucker told the rapper.
Celebrating this victory, the rapper tweeted that he has finally beat the streets:
I really put that shit behind me today ….. I beat the streets ??
