It appears Meek Mill request to get out of solitary has come true. On Saturday morning, TMZ reported that Meek was moved to another prison entirely, and was moved out solitary and into general population.
An official at the State Correctional Institution in Chester, PA says the rapper was just transferred to the prison and out of Camp Hill. He’s says the Philly rapper is currently in general population and has his own cell.
Earlier this week, news surfaced online that Meek was going to crazy if he continued to be held in solitary confinement. The lawyers said prison officials were worried about Meek interacting with other inmates, so they had to put him in solitary because it’s the only way they could protect him and keep him safe. However, Meek’s legal team wanted the judge to see that putting anyone in solitary confinement is a detriment to one’s psyche, and ultimately could hurt Meek in the long run, and it looks like they listened.
Now in general population, Meek can hit up the yard in the morning or afternoon, where he can do things like play basketball or go for a run. He also has access to the on-site library if he wishes to gain knowledge and pick up a book to read.
Meek will reportedly also be assigned a job too, which will either consist of cleaning prison cells or cooking in the kitchen, both of which pays 19 cents an hour.
Meek was supposed to be able to start to see visitors come next week, but I’m not sure if this recent transfer could affect any rules or regulations. But at the very least, things are kinda/sorta looking up for the MMG rapper.
Just yesterday more good news surfaced for Meek revealing that a bail hearing was granted to him. The Philly rapper is scheduled to be in front of court on November 27th at 9 a.m. at the Center of Criminal Justice in Philly, the same place where the protests happened a few days a go.
We’ll continue to keep you posted on the latest details with Meek as they become available. Stay tuned.
