Meek Mill‘s mission to reform the criminal justice system will take a huge step when he introduces a new bill at a news conference slated to begin at noon … and TMZ will be streaming live.
The rapper will be flanked by 76ers co-owner Michael Rubin, CNN’s Van Jones — who is also the CEO of REFORM Alliance — and several local politicians at the Philadelphia Municipal Services Building … where they’ll propose new legislation to reform the state probation and parole system.
The proposed 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.
