Meek Mill was found guilty of violating his probation in court today (Nov. 6) and has been sentenced to two-to-four years in state prison, according to local CBS reporter Joe Holden. In March of this year, he was arrested and charged with assault which is a misdemeanor following an altercation at the St. Louis airport.
Tacopina and Brian McMonagle, another one of Meek's attorneys, have said that they plan on appealing the rapper's sentence.

Charges from both incidents were eventually dismissed, but that didn't stop the judge from sending him to prison. Interestingly, both charges against him were dropped, but the judge says that by simply being arrested in the first place, he was violating his probation. His failure to follow probation rules led to another five months in prison in 2013 and a almost 10-year extension of his probation, which has become something of an albatross hanging from him.
