On January 12, the Philadelphia rapper posted a certificate to Instagram that was signed by Governor Tom Wolf and listed his earlier convictions and the decision to absolve him of the associated legal repercussions.
“The Board of Pardons, after full hearing, upon due public notice, and in open session, have recommended to me, in writing, with the reason therefor, the pardon of the said Robert R. Williams which recommendation and reasons have been filed in the office of the Lieutenant Governor,” the certificate reads.
“Given under my hand and the Great Seal of the State, at the City of Harrisburg, this 12th day of January in the year of our Lord 2023. By the governor, Tom Wolf.”
Meek Mill wrote in the caption: “Thankyall. I’m only gone do more for my community on god! #newlevelsunlocked.”
This week, Governor Wolf granted pardons to 369 people, raising his total number of recipients since taking office in 2015. Meek Mill was one of them.
“I have taken this process very seriously — reviewing and giving careful thought to each and every one of these 2,540 pardons and the lives they will impact,” he said in a statement. “Every single one of the Pennsylvanians who made it through the process truly deserves their second chance, and it’s been my honor to grant it.”
He continued: “A record prevents positive forward motion in a person’s life, and can spark a repetitive cycle of defeat. I firmly believe that with restored rights, pardoned Pennsylvanians prove themselves by stepping up and giving back to our communities.”
In December, a judge who imprisoned Mee<strong>Quentin Miller Said He Never Had a Positive Experience With Meek Mill</strong>k Mill in 2017 for violating his probation was charged with unethical behavior.
The Philadelphia Inquirer claims that Genece Brinkley was moved to civil court and relieved of all her criminal cases, which were reassigned due to rising suspicions of unethical behavior.
Brinkley was accused by attorneys and other judges of “imposing illegal sentences, letting sentences to continue past their maximum date, or failing to address cases remanded to her by higher courts” after assessing her caseload.
