Meek Mill's Lawyers File Documents To Nullify His Sentence

Williams has been on probation since, and was recently imprisioned for two to four years on probation violations.

Meek's legal team has filed a Post-Conviction Relief Act petition on the basis that Graham was lying during his testimony. As well, Gibson said that Mill took his gun out of his waistband and discarded it, officers did not need to yell for him to "drop the gun", Graham never took cover behind a parked van and Mill never tried to flee - all of which aligned with Mill's testimony and were contrary to Graham's own claims in court. "Stante, who hails from Slovenia, gave jailed rapper Meek Mill a strong showing of support on the global stage after flashing a "#FreeMeekMill" sign on the back of his snowboard.

Following Mill's 2007 arrest, he went on trial in 2008, during which Graham testified that police informants had seen the then 18-year-old Mill selling crack cocaine on the streets of Philadelphia.

Meek's legal team is raising the issue due to a recent Philadelphia Inquirer report about a list of Philly cops with a history of lying, abuse and racial bias.

Though Stante failed to qualify in the event, ranking at No. 25, he still managed to garner some attention and get people outside Philly and the United States talking about rapper Meek Mill's prison sentence.

While the list has not been made public, sources for The Philadelphia Inquirer say it includes Graham. Walker also claimed that Graham fabricated the probable cause for search warrants and lied about the justification for warrantless searches. Former narcotics officer Jeffrey Walker said he "would steal" with Graham. Graham was the sole witness who testified in Meek's original trial.

It is a great possibility that Meek Mill could become a free man sooner than later. The report claims Graham frequently stole money during arrests and beat up suspects.
