The Philadelphia-born Mill was sentenced to two to four years in prison in November for violating probation on a gun and drug conviction case from about ten years ago. He received a rousing ovation from the fans in attendance, as seen in a video posted on the official National Basketball Association twitter account.
Meek Mill performs during the 2015 BET Awards in Los Angeles, California, US, June 28, 2015.
"I feel great", Williams told NBC as he entered Wells Fargo Center, where he was reportedly cheered by the crowd as he rang the game's opening bell.
Meek was been permitted specific visiting times and phone calls by officials at the jail in Chester, and the Supreme Court notified his legal team of his bail outside of these permitted hours on Tuesday.
The Sixers' pre-game bell ringer did not disappoint yet again. He referred to his jail time as a "nightmare" and said he wouldn't have survived those five months if it had not been for the prayers and visits he got.More news: Trump's ambassador switch shows Australia is a 'second-class ally': Rudd
"Though I am blessed to have the assets to struggle this unjust scenario, I perceive that many individuals of color throughout the nation do not have that luxurious and I plan to make use of my platform to shine a light-weight on these points", Mill mentioned.
'In the meantime, I plan to work closely with my legal team to overturn this unwarranted conviction and look forward to reuniting with my family and resuming my music career'. The now-retired officer was among a list of police officers the prosecutor's office has sought to keep off the witness stand in cases across the city because of credibility questions. "We are pleased with the Supreme Court's decision to grant Meek Mill bail and allow him to return home to his loved ones".
In December, Brinkley denied Meek's request for bail because she believed the "Litty" rapper "is and continues to be a danger to the community in Philadelphia, New York, Missouri, and other locations throughout the United States".
"Meek was unjustly convicted and should not have spent a single day in jail", Tacopina said. One remarkable thing, which is a clear diss to Judge Brinkley. the justices refused to boot Judge Brinkley from the case, but said she "may opt to remove herself from presiding over this matter".
