At the beginning of this month, Meek Mill‘s latest request to be released from prison was denied. ”This ruling from Judge Genece Brinkley simply reaffirms the fact she has turned Meek Mill’s case into a personal vendetta,” Meek Mill’s attorney Joe Tacopina remarked to TMZ. Showing his support for Meek Mill’s cause, New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft and entrepreneur Michael Rubin stopped by State Correctional Institution-Chester in Pennsylvania to personally visit the incarcerated rapper.
“It’s really bad. I know some of our players in the NFL have talked about this. I see it firsthand. It’s just wrong. We have to find a way to correct it and also help the community help themselves,” Kraft shared with NBC. “It’s just sad. This guy is a great guy. Shouldn’t be here. And then think of all the taxpayers here paying for people like this to be in jail and not out being productive.”
“He’s an amazing young man,” Kraft adds. “I know how I’d feel if I were in the situation he is. He’s very intelligent.”
