Despite crooked cops, a co-sign from the D.A. and the Governor, a protest, and rallies in Philadelphia, Judge Genece Brinkley has Meek Mill’s request for freedom again.
Judge Brinkley sent the rap star to prison for violating the terms of his probation from a 2008 drug and gun case
In addition to Judge Brinkley’s Court Clerk asking for Meek to pay her son’s tuition, Meek’s lawyers pointed to crooked cops’ fabricated testimony in the rapper’s original trial as a reason to overturn the sentence.
Over the past month, Meek received a co-sign from the D.A. and the Governor, but that was not enough to satisfy the ruthless Judge during today’s hearing (April 2).
“This ruling from Judge Genece Brinkley simply reaffirms the fact she has turned Meek Mill’s case into a personal vendetta,” Meek’s lawyer Joseph Tacopina said in a statement.
“In spite of the recommendations from the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office, which was supported by Governor Tom Wolf, the judge continues to stand alone in supporting Officer Reginald Graham’s perjured testimony as well as his criminal behavior that has been documented.”
Judge Genece Brinkley upheld a December 2017 ruling, where she labeled Meek a “danger to the community,” due to failed drug tests, a fight in a St. Louis airport, traveling without permission. Meek’s lawyers are hoping to take the case to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.
