Meek Mill Proposes New Probation And Parole System

2018 Essence Festival Presented By Coca-Cola - Ernest N. Morial Convention Center - Day 2

Rapper Meek Mill and CNN’s Van Jones are proposing a bill in the state of Pennsylvania that will provide new legislation to reform the state probation and parole system.

The bill aims to prevent the courts from sentencing a person to consecutive probation sentences, prevent the court from extending a person's time on probation or parole due to nonpayment of fines and fees, plus establish a system of incentives that reward good behavior.

Meek Mill spoke at a news conference yesterday about his goals saying that he is now a voice for the voiceless and said, “there's a lot of statutes and laws that don't make sense.”

After being in jail for five months for a probation violation, Meek Mill is now pushing for reforms in the criminal justice system all over the country. He is even helping create REFORM Alliance with Jay-Z.
