Rev. Al Sharpton plans to visit Meek Mill in jail on Monday at the Chester State Correctional Institution in Pennsylvania.
Rev. Sharpton will meet with the rapper, as part of the criminal justice reform efforts by Sharpton’s National Action Network (NAN). Mill’s case led to outrage and sparked a national debate about race and the criminal justice system after a Common Pleas Court judge gave him a sentence of two to four years in prison for violating his probation in a 2008 drug-and-gun case.
The rapper is currently not eligible for parole for at least two years.
