PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A Pennsylvania appeals court for the second time has rejected a request to free rapper Meek Mill.
Mill's legal team filed their appeal with the higher court earlier this week after the judge who sentenced him struck down a similar request and called him a "danger to the community." Attorneys for Mill say they'll continue their efforts to free him.
The 30-year-old rapper was sentenced to two to four years in prison last month for violating probation on a roughly decade-old gun and drug case.
His lawyers unsuccessfully asked the Superior Court to free Mill last week and also have called for the sentencing judge to step aside from the case.
The FBI says it does not confirm or deny investigations. The judge has had no comment.
