An article by The Philadelphia Inquirer focuses on, "Why are Pennsylvania judges sentencing people on probation for debts they won't ever be able to pay?." The write-up tells the story of Maurice Hudson, who is currently serving an 18-38 month sentence, simply because he is unable to pay $1,941 in court fees. The fees come from a robbery Hudson was involved in over ten years ago as a 19-year-old but have since then not been involved in a crime.
With the recent launch of REFORM Alliance, founded by Jay-Z, Meek Mill, Michael Rubin, and Robert Kraft. It was a no-brainer to get involved for Meek Mill and Michael Rubin, the two went to visit him at a State Correctional Institution in Phoenix. More interestingly, the Judge who sent Hudson to prison was Judge Genece Brinkley, the same Judge Meek Mill struggled with for over 10 years while he was on probation.

Hudson attempted to explain to Brinkley that his $150 weekly salary as a janitor made it impossible for him to make the payments, while he also has two young daughters with special needs to take care of. “I keep hearing it every time I come in front of you, ‘I’m not trying.’ How is it I’m not trying?,” Hudson explained to Judge Genece Brinkley. Watch Michael Rubin speak on the situation down below.

You must listen to this story of Maurice Hudson - If this doesn't upset you I don't know what will! Maurice was sent to prison for 18-36 months because he couldn't afford to pay $1,900 in fines while he has two kids at home with special needs. Thanks to Samantha Melamed of @phillyinquirer for telling this story - WE ARE ON THIS!!! And this is exactly why we created @reform - we are going to go state by state to change the laws so situations like this can't happen - What happened to Maurice is NOT ACCEPTABLE!! We look forward to Maurice getting home to be with his kids and family.
