On Tuesday, Patriots owner Robert Kraft visited rapper Meek Mill in a Chester City, Pennsylvania jail, which is located just outside of Philadelphia.

Kraft went alongside entrepreneur Michael Rubin.

The two went to the jail to give their support for Meek Mill's release. He's serving 2-4 years in prison since being sentenced in November 2017 for violating his probation after failing a drug test, traveling out of the region and getting arrested for fighting and other related offenses.

"Amazing young man. I know how I’d feel if I was in the situation he is," Kraft said, via NBC Philadelphia. "Every time I see him, I just come away more impressed. He’s very intelligent. And makes it clear to me we have to do something with criminal justice reform."

Added Kraft: "This guy's a great guy. [He] shouldn't be here."

Meek Mill was arrested in 2007 on drug and weapon violations and went to jail. He was released on parole in 2009 after serving six months, but while on parole he tested positive for drugs, left the area and got into a fight in St. Louis and then illegally operated an ATV on the streets of New York City.
