Rapper Meek Mill Is Granted Retrial After Years-Long Legal Fight

A Pennsylvania appeals court is ordering a new trial for musician Meek Mill, 10 years after he was convicted of drug and weapons crimes. Mill is seen here this week announcing the launch of the Dream Chasers record label, in a joint venture with Jay-Z.

Evidence that arose after Meek’s trial is “of such a strong nature and character that a different verdict will likely result at a retrial,” a three-judge panel in Pennsylvania says.
