Demetrius “Lil Meech” Flenory Jr. was arrested and charged with first-degree organized fraud and first-degree grand theft. The rising actor of Starz’s BMF series was facing 60 years in prison if convicted, after he reportedly scammed a jeweler out of expensive items.
Well Media Take Out has learned that Lil Meech is now free as a bird.
Sources close to the actor confirmed that Meech and the Miami jeweler who was alleging fraud have come to a settlement – Meech paid off the jeweler, and the jeweler in exchange dropped all charges against the popular actor.
There is speculation that Lil Meech’s big homie Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson – the executive producer of the Stars show – may have stepped in and provided the cash needed to make the case go away.
Lil Meech confirmed his release on Twitter yesterday:
The 22-year-old son of famed drug kingpin Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory was arrested in Miami for the charges.
First-degree organized fraud carries a sentence of up to 30 years in prison. Ironically, Big Meech is currently serving 30 years in federal prison for controlling and overseeing a national cocaine trafficking ring.
