Philadelphia — The mother of jailed rapper Meek Mill is calling on Philadelphia's district attorney to "step in" and help her son.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports the plea by Kathy Williams came during a brief news conference on Tuesday before the start of a criminal justice panel at the University of Pennsylvania.

Williams strongly criticised the judge who sentenced Mill to two to four years in prison last fall for violating probation on a roughly decade-old gun and drug case. The judge in the case reportedly said that the musician had wasted several chances to clean up his act. An appeals court in December denied a request to free the 30-year-old musician on bail.

Representatives of Mill previously have asked that the district attorney's office intervene in the case.
