Meek Mill gets three months of house arrest

Bill Anderson explains what happened today, as Meek Mill was sentenced to three months of house arrest

- Rapper Meek Mill has been sentenced to 90 days of house arrest- and no jail time- in his probation violation case. 

Common Pleas Judge Genece Brinkley has also ordered another six years of probation.The decision came down after Mill spent most of the day in a Philadelphia courthouse. 
 Mill, a Philadelphia native, cannot work during the three-month period and can leave home only to do community service with groups serving adults, not young people.
 The judge has kept tight reins on the 28-year-old Mill after giving him a break in a 2009 drug and gun case. She has once sent him back to jail.
   Prosecutors say the violations include Mill's unapproved travels to New York for a concert and his efforts to join superstar rapper girlfriend Nicki Minaj in various cities. 
 Mill has alternately complained about probation and credited the judge with helping him succeed.
In December the judge said he violated court restricted travel and failed to communicate with his probation officer on several occasions. He's already appeared twice in court with Minaj by his side.

Meek Mill spent time Thursday with students at Boys Latin of Philadelphia Charter School.

There, he shared the good, bad and ugly with local students regarding his life, success and choices.

"I just came to deliver a message that no matter what situation you come from don't let it be the situation that holds you back in life," he said.
