Rev. Al Sharpton Visits Meek Mill, Urges Judge to 'Reconsider'

Sharpton is planning to help rapper Meek Mill while he is serving time in a Pennsylvania prison because he did the same thing for Tupac in the 90s

He is representative of something far more than his stardom.

According to new court docs, obtained by TMZ, Meek tried to get a higher court to spring him from prison, where Judge Genece Brinkley sentenced him to 2 to 4 years after a probation violation. Philadelphia Common Pleas Court Judge Genece Brinkley said he would be eligible for parole after two years. He was sentenced to two to four years in prison earlier this month after violating his probation for gun and drug convictions almost a decade ago.

Criminal charges were dropped after both arrests when Mill entered pretrial diversion programs. Prosecutors and Mill's probation officer had recommended to the judge that he not serve prison time. Meek Mill is behind bars at the Chester State Correctional Institution in Pennsylvania.

Rev. Sharpton will visit Meek Mill in prison Monday

An emergency petition to get Meek Mill free on bail was denied Tuesday - but Pennsylvania's Superior Court ordered his judge to stop stalling on his appeal motion.

The sentence sparked public outcry from a host of celebrities, including rapper and mogul Jay-Z and former National Football League quarterback and activist Colin Kaepernick. "He really said, 'Reverend, if nothing else, let people understand what this system does.'" Sharpton met with the rapper for about two and a half hours.

Tacopina said they filed an appeal on the sentencing two weeks ago, requesting Brinkley to reconsider her decision and recuse herself from the case because she "can't be just and partial".
