The Philadelphia rapper was originally sentenced to two to four years in prison by Judge Genece Brinkley last November for violating his probation for charges relating to a 2008 drug and gun conviction, and had been denied bail for the second time in December 2017.

The District Attorney’s office said in a statement that there are “questions about the credibility” of the officer who arrested Mill and others over the years, and they believe there is enough evidence to vacate Mill’s conviction, since the police officer landed on a list of officers suspected of lying in court and framing witnesses.
