Jared Leto’s acting resume is a lengthy one. With a career spanning back to the 90’s, he’s honed his talents to portray even the most complicated characters. This includes Rayon in Dallas Buyers Club, The Joker in Suicide Squad, and most recently, Niander Wallace in Blade Runner 2049. His upcoming role in the Netflix film, The Outsider has him portraying – you guessed it – an outsider. Leto portrays an American in post-war Japan, who joins the yakuza. Well-known as a method actor, I wouldn’t want to run into him as he was filming this movie.

The new trailer shows f Leto as a stone-faced soldier-turned-gang-member; hair slicked back and all. The YouTube description describes the character as “An American soldier imprisoned in postwar Japan enters the dark world the yakuza, adopting their way life in repayment for his freedom.” You can really tell where his loyalties lie when he assaults an American man with a typewriter after he slandered Japan towards the end the clip. Leto is known to play conflicted characters, so we can only assume what the character’s next moves will be. However, it won’t be a long wait. The Martin Zandvliet-directed film hits Netflix on March 9th.

Yesterday, we reported that Meek Mill’s lawyers would be filing the paperwork for a Post-Conviction Relief Act following the recent news corruption in the rapper’s case. Today, those files have been taken into consideration and Meek has been granted an appeal hearing in April. The appeal is based on the news that the sole witness, police ficer Reginald Graham, is on a secret list “corrupt cops” that have committed perjury by lying on the witness stand or who have been improper in their arrests. The Philly native is currently serving time for violating his probation but, according to Meek’s lawyers, Graham is lying about several elements surrounding the arrest.

For one, Meek allegedly did not point his gun at the arresting ficer or at anyone else during the arrest, and he did not have any drugs on him at the time. These are both aspects that Graham has been untruthful about, a situation which we spoke about directly with Meek’s lawyer Joe Tacopina. The Philadelphia rapper’s legal team has been incredibly hard at work, looking for any angle they can swing to get their client out prison.

The bill comes shortly after the Larry Nassar sentencing last month. The disavowed former team physician the US Gymnastics Team is facing up to 175 years imprisonment for his disgraceful actions. Rulings this nature are unprecedented, and quite nearly impossible to pass in congress.

It will force all coaches, trainers and other student athletes to report a sex abuse allegation within a 24-hour window. The bill also features a rule that prevents student athletes under 18 years old from being alone with an ficial that isn’t their parent.

Meek Mill has been receiving support from all directions as he fights his current two-to-four year sentencing for violating his probation. The rapper even got a shoutout from an unexpected source at the 2018 Winter Olympics, proving that the #FreeMeekMill movement knows no bounds. Meek and his lawyers have been seeking ways to get the rapper out jail in a timely manner, and they may have found a loophole as he was arrested by alleged “dirty cop” Reginald Graham back in 2007. The aforementioned policeman reportedly was untruthful in his testimony against Meek Mill and Meek’s lawyers have ficially filed a document to vacate his conviction and sentencing, based on these claims.

Meek’s legal team has filed a Post-Conviction Relief Act petition on the basis that Graham was lying during his testimony. A member the same police team as Graham, Jerold Gibson, claims that he was present during the 2007 arrest and that Graham is not being factual about Meek pointing a gun at anybody. If the charges are not dismissed, Meek’s team is looking for a new trial as they do not believe that Graham’s testimony is credible.

As he was jailed partly on the word Graham, who is now being questioned on whether his opinion is relevant or not, Meek may be freed soon, which is good news for the rap game and the Philly native. We just hope that this gets resolved in a timely manner and that things are justly concluded for Meek’s sake.
Last month Aly Raisman took the stand to speak to her sexual abuser, Larry Nassar, during his trial that has sent him away to prison for 175 years. “You do realize now the women you so heartlessly abused over such a long period time are now a force, and you are nothing,” she said in court. Aly is just one the 100+ victims who was abused by Larry when they were in the USA Gymnastics and Larry was their doctor.

We are free to draw confidence and happiness in our own way, and it is never for someone else to choose for us or to even judge us for that matter.”

Hersl and Taylor were members the Gun Trace Task Force, which has recently been under investigation for its connection to a series robberies, planting fake guns and drugs at crime scenes, as well as netting thousands in unearned overtime hours.
After the verdict was revealed, U.S. Attorney Stephen Schenning notes how “their business model was that the people that they were robbing had no recourse — who were they going to go to? That’s what the ficers] were counting on.” The disgraced former detectives may receive a sentence up to sixty years in prison for their crimes.
Four ficers who have been discharged from service and pled guilty to former charges testified on behalf the government. The ficers identified Hersl and Taylor’s connection to heists perpetrated by members the Gun Trace Task Force unit, with Taylor being accused participating in a robbery to the tune $100,000.
Baltimore Police Commissioner Darryl De Sousa admits that “we recognize that this indictment and subsequent trial uncovered some the most egregious and despicable acts ever perpetrated in law enforcement.” De Sousa also reveals how a new unit will be created to “focus, specifically, on this case and the allegations that were made, but were not part the indictment or prosecution.”

Since Meek Mill’s received a clearly unjust prison sentence for probation violation, the judge behind the sentencing has received a lot criticisms. Meek’s lawyer, Joe Tacopina, has claimed on several occasions that she held some sort bias in the case. Earlier in the year, transcripts from their court hearing were released that revealed that she never tried to sway Meek into switching management. She’s threatened to sue Meek and his attorney over his false claims and now her lawyer, A Charles Peruto Jr., is speaking on the matter.

Peruto spoke to TMZ earlier today and said that Tacopina has been lying this whole. He says that he was the one that told Judge Genece Brinkley to release the transcript because it proves that the claims held against her are false.
“Joe Tacopina is a circus clown. He wasn’t there, yet he gave all sorts interviews saying the judge had this discussion trying to coax Meek into switching managers. It didn’t happen.” He said, “And as soon as I got back and I read that transcript, I told the judge ‘release the transcript’ because it completely flies in the face his allegations.”

He claims that Tacopina used the media in an attempt to smear the judge’s name. While she’s been accused unethical conduct, Peruto claims that Meek’s legal teams have been the ones who’ve been trying to deal with the matter unethically by using people outside the court room to try and lift Meek’s sentence. He says former Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell and others have contacted her to try and get her to change her mind.

As if they didn’t have enough problems, Suge Knight’s fiancée is heading to jail after repeatedly violating court orders related to Knight’s murder case.
Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Douglas Sortino ruled that Toi-Lin Kelly had violated a court order by facilitating phone calls between Suge Knight and documentary producers who are working on a movie about Knight’s Death Row record label.
Kelly was sentenced to three years in prison for violating her probation. That probation came from an earlier plea deal she took to avoid jail time after violating another court order around the case.
Knight is barred from communicating with anyone but his attorneys while he awaits a trial for murder that stemmed from a 2015 incident on the set Straight Outta Compton. Kelly first landed in hot water for selling surveillance footage the incident to TMZ for $55,000. A judge had ruled that the footage was not to be made public.
Kelly pleaded no contest and was ordered to pay $55,000 in restitution, perform 100 hours community service, and serve five years probation in lieu jail time. However, the judge was not so lenient when Kelly was found to have violated another court order.
