76er Co-Owner Calls Out Judge In Meek Mill Trail: I Know You Have A Vendetta Against Meek!
The co-owner of the Philadelphia 76ers, Michael Rubin took to Instagram to express his frustration with the judge in the Meek Mill trail. Rubin believes the Judge has it out for Meek after ignoring requests for a trip to a Sixer playoff game in Canada. Rubin wrote on Friday,
“Judge Genece Brinkley – I know you have a vendetta against Meek Mill and are obsessed with trying to control every aspect of his life, but did you really NOT approve him to go to rep the sixers in Toronto for the game? As soon as the schedule came out, Meek asked probation for approval- they immediately approved!”
Judge Brinkley has overseen Meek’s previous cases going back to 2017 where Meek violated his probation and sentenced the rapper that to two to four years in prison.
Rubin continues adding that Meek and his team filed for approval as soon as the playoff schedule was released.
(YES FOR EVERYONE WHO DOESN’T UNDERSTAND, MEEK MUST STILL GET THE JUDGES APPROVAL PERSONALLY EVERYTIME HE LEAVES PA SINCE HE’S STILL ON PROBATION 12 YEARS LATER FOR A CRIME HE DIDN’T COMMIT) We filed w/your court as soon as the schedule came out since you need to approve travel to Canada! Since you didn’t respond to numerous phone calls and emails we even sent a lawyer to the courthouse today!!
The Sixers owner opens up on what would happen if those who are on probation couldn’t afford to seek an attorney,
AND MOST IMPORTANTLY IF THIS HAPPENS TO MEEK, WHAT DO YOU THINK HAPPENS TO THE AVG PERSON(WHO CANT AFFORD GREAT LAWYERS ETC)ON PROBATION??
Rubin has been active in the Philadelphia community in the efforts of bringing change to their justice system. As previously reported, Rubin, along with rap mogul Jay-Z, CNN analyst Van Jones, and Patriots owner, Robert Kraft created a super-group of power players to advocate for criminal justice reform. In January, Rubin wrote on social media:
