"It was always a thought in the back of my mind that 10 years of probation would bring me back to prison because a technical violation is police contact", he said.

After the meeting, Kraft spoke with reporters outside, saying he was affected by the interaction with Meek Mill, and calling for criminal justice reform.

"He's an unbelievable young man", Kraft said of the star, known officially as Robert Rihmeek Williams, outside the State Correctional Institution-Chester. "I didn't know about it until I read about it in the paper".

New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft and Philadelphia 76ers co-owner Michael Rubin visited Mill in prison Tuesday. I saw (Gronkowski recently at Gillette Stadium). "I think nationwide we need to look at how we handle criminal justice issues and how we treat people when they're younger and shouldn't follow them when they're older". Since that time, Mill's infractions have included traveling out of town without approval, failing a drug test and being arrested for an alleged fight at an airport.

As previously reported, Common Pleas Court Judge Genece E. Brinkley, who sentenced Meek in November, denied his request for bail both in December and in early April. "Meek doesn't even play football so I don't see how it's a publicity ploy", he said.

"It's really bad. I know some of our players in the National Football League have talked about this". It's just wrong and we have to find a way to correct it and also help the community help themselves.
