Reverend Al Sharpton visited rapper Meek Mill in prison Monday after saying his case is symbolic of widespread injustice in the judicial system. Apparently, Meek's legal team previously appealed to the higher court in an effort to get Meek released from prison, which ultimately didn't go over well.

Mill, whose real name is Robert Rihmeek Williams, 30, was sentenced to two to four years in state prison earlier this month for violating a probation agreement stemming from a 2008 gun and drug conviction. He also was recently arrested two times - once in St. Louis for a fight in an airport where serious charges against him were later dropped and the other for reckless driving in New York City. Mill's probation officer and a prosecutor had recommended that he not be jailed.
