Court Clerk In Meek Mill Case Fired After Asking Him For Money For Her Son’s Education During Trial

The court clerk Wanda Chawarria, who slipped rapper, Meek Mill a note asking him for money during his probation violation hearing, has been fired. The clerk had asked Meek Mill, in the note, to help her with funds to pay her son's college tuition, so he doesn't get kicked out of school. Writing, "unfortunately with my bad credit, I am unable to secure a loan or co-sign a loan for my son. Anything that you can do is very much appreciated." Wanda Chavarria slipped Mill (born Robert Rihmeek Williams) a note during his November 6, 2017 hearing, asking if he would help to fund her son’s final college semester at Virginia Commonwealth University. Court officials say the clerk irretrievably crossed the line by writing in her note she needed college tuition money for her son. Chava...

Assault Case Against Meek Mill Has Been Dropped

Back in March, Meek Mill was charged with misdemeanor assault after he allegedly got into an altercation with an employee at St. Louis International Airport. Now, his lawyers have gotten the case dropped. Meek's attorney Joe Tacopina revealed that Meek was able to come to a deal with his prosecutors, and it was pretty straightforward. If Meek agreed to complete some community service, then his case would be dismissed. Meek completed his community service at Philadelphia's Veterans Association, so that's that. Just weeks ago, Meek Mill took a deal for his reckless driving charges in New York City. Now all he has to do is avoid any legal issues for six months, and that arrest will be wiped clean from his record.

TAUNTON, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts woman who encouraged her boyfriend to kill himself in dozens of text messages and told him to "get back in" a truck filled with toxic gas faces up to 20 years in prison when a judge sentences her on a charge of involuntary manslaughter.
