As we've reported, the rapper's been on probation ever since then, and he's now in prison for violating that probation.
The attorneys have filed a Post-Conviction Relief Act petition, claiming that the rapper's conviction in 2008 was based on reports from a biased or lying police officer. Gibson, a member of the same squad as Graham, provided a sworn affidavit where he says the "Dreams and Nightmares" artist never pointed a gun at the officer or anyone else.More news: Five Die as Stolen Car and Oil Truck Crash on Long Island
Meek Mill's legal team continues to churn out proof of conduct they hope will lead to the rapper's freedom. Instead, Graham said Meek simply removed his gun from his waistband to toss it. A member of the same police team as Graham, Jerold Gibson, claims that he was present during the 2007 arrest and that Graham is not being factual about Meek pointing a gun at anybody.

According to the Inquirer story, Graham, who retired from the force past year, testified at Meek's 2008 trial that he had watched Meek sell what was later determined to be crack. According to reports, the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office maintains a list of around two dozen Philadelphia police officials with a history of racial bias and brutality.
It is a great possibility that Meek Mill could become a free man sooner than later. Graham was the sole witness who testified in Meek's original trial.More news: Home Depot braces for spring, prepares hiring spree
In addition to the suspicion of bias from the presiding judge on his case, new findings claim that the police officer who arrested Meek Mill has been suspected of racial bias and abuse previously. According to the docs, Graham frequently stole and kept money that was recovered during searches and arrests, beat people who were considered suspects and even admitted to Walker that he beat Meek in 2007 or 2008.
