Fame seemed like a steep price to pay for 23 hours of lockdown, especially since many already believe his multi-year prison sentence is BS. Well, now it looks like the Philly rapper is finally catching a small break.
TMZ is reporting that Meek has been transferred from the State Correctional Institution at Camp Hill to a different facility.
“An official at the State Correctional Institution in Chester, PA tells TMZ ... the rapper was just transferred to their prison and out of Camp Hill,” the celeb website reported. “He’s now in general population and he has his own cell.”
The move will take Meek approximately 120 miles west. The State Correctional Institution in Chester is reportedly classified as a “medium security facility.” The transfer comes after his legal team lobbied that his time in solitary could “wreak havoc” his “mental state.”
Even though this is good news for Meek, it comes after he was denied a bail hearing on Friday (November 17). He’s currently been sentenced to two-to-four years for a probation violation stemming from a 2008 conviction for drug and weapons charges.
