Meek Mill – FBI Looking Into Judge Presiding Over Case
There is some potentially good news surrounding Meek Mill’s (real name Robert Williams) case. According to reports, the FBI has launched a probe into the Philadelphia judge who presided over the 30-year-old rapper’s case.
The public, along with a number of A-listers, have voiced their concern over what they consider a tough sentence for Meek.
As previously reported, although Meek’s probation officer had asked for no jail time,
Judge Genece Brinkley sentenced him to two to four years in jail for a probation violation. He is currently in solitary confinement.
Meek’s attorney Joe Tacopina claims that the judge was bias and even claimed that the judge asked Meek to drop his current management and sign with Philly music figure Charlie Mack, whom Meek worked with early in his career. Mack has said that he doesn’t know the judge. A source states about the FBI probe,
The feds have an interest in the judge and [her] potential relationships. This is an investigation looking into a possible extortionate demand. Undercover agents have been in the courtroom monitoring the Meek proceedings since April 2016.
Meek’s attorney also claims that the judge asked the rapper — in her private chambers in front of Meek’s then-girlfriend Nicki Minaj — to record a Boyz II Men song and positively reference the judge in the lyrics. FYI: Mack manages the Boyz II Men.
