Meek Mill’s House Arrest Extended For Not Completing Community Service
Meek Mill will have to spend a little more time confined to his ankle monitoring bracelet before he can be a free man.
The Philly rapper, who was set to be released from house arrest on June 1, just got an additional eight days slapped onto his sentence due to a mix up with his community service.
Last November, the rapper violated his parole (from previous gun charges) when he left his hometown to attend the American Music Awards with girlfriend Nicki Minaj. Though he could’ve faced massive jail time, he was sentenced to three months of community service and fitted with an ankle monitoring bracelet.
According to TMZ, the “House Party” emcee was ordered by the judge presiding over his case to put in 90 days of work with the homeless, senior citizens, Habitat for Humanity, or veterans.
While insiders close to the 29-year-old said he spent time visiting schools, delivering motivational speeches, and helping with the water crisis in Flint, Michigan, the judge deemed the work insufficient as it did not meet the aforementioned requirements.
Additionally, the rapper only worked six days a week throughout his stint.
Though sources close to Meek claim the terms of his community service weren’t clear, court documents state the contrary.
The Philadelphia D.A.'s Office told the site it will reevaluate Meek’s final release date once his volunteer work is completed.
