Meek Mill To Be Released From Prison Free Man Within Hours!

Meek Mill is out of prison, and everyone wants him at the Sixers game
BC-US-Meek Mill, 2nd Ld-Writethru, 598Meek Mill released from prison, rings76ers' Liberty BellAP Photo PACS102, PACS103, PAPHQ101, PAPHQ102, PAPHQ201, PACS101, PACS108, SPANPACS102, PACS116Eds: Rewrites first paragraph, updates to add prosecutors have not said whether they would seek to retry Mill, but signs are they won't. Although Judge Brinkley may still be overseeing the case come time for the hearing, Tacopina doesn't believe Meek will be back behind bars.
Judge Genece Brinkley insists she is not unfairly punishing Meek and she does not feel the Supreme Court was rebuking her on Tuesday when it ordered Meek be granted immediate bail, suggesting she step aside.
Ordering Mill out on bail, the state's Supreme Court cited "credibility issues" over a police officer who was a witness. He received a thunderous ovation from the Wells Fargo Center crowd upon introduction and was seated courtside, next to 76ers co-owner Michael Rubin and comedian Kevin Hart.
Mill immediately turned to Instagram to thank the multitude of supporters, fans, family members, members of the judicial system - and even the district attorney's office - for helping him obtain his freedom.
"While the past five months have been a nightmare, the prayers, visits, calls, letters and rallies have helped me stay positive".
"To the Philly District Attorney's office, I'm grateful for your commitment to justice".
He said he would now focus his attention on getting his convictions overturned, and that he looks forward to resuming his music career.

Cosby Accuser Wished Rape Cost at Memoir, Publisher Says
Jackson said the statements are the same, but a person on Cosby's first legal team may not have written down all the information. If convicted, Cosby could get up to 10 years in prison on each of three charges of aggravated indecent assault against Constand.
Several high-profile celebrities, including fellow rappers Jay-Z, T.I. and Rick Ross had issued calls for Mill's release.
His original sentencing, which took place on November 6, sparked large protests and drew hundreds of demonstrators, including a number of celebrities and athletes, to the streets of Philadelphia to demand justice for the rapper. And I think coming out, he will be able to use that platform to really shine a light on how corrupt this system is and hopefully also keep this younger generation from going through this.
In the end, Meek Mill's legal drama is far from over.
Kohli, de Villiers Taking Game Away From Delhi
The team RCB is led by Indian Cricket team captain Virat Kohli and the team Delhi Daredevils is led by Gautam Gambhir . But nothing has gone right for their teams so far and tonight will be a good opportunity to start a winning streak.
"When you know that you're innocent, it's tough to sit through something that you know that you didn't do", Hart said. Another person who's relieved about the star's release is JAY-Z. Inmates locked up for violations of parole or probation make up one-third of the state prison population. The hip hop star was arrested past year after he was involved in a fight, then arrested again for popping wheelies on a dirt bike.
