Meek Mill – Philadelphia District Attorney Believes He Deserves New Trial & New Judge In Probation Violation Case
Philly rapper Meek Mill has been out of prison for just over a year, but his legal issues are far from over—and the current Philadelphia District Attorney believes it’s because he can’t get a fair trial due to a heavily biased judge.
Meek Mill was officially released from prison back in April 2018, but his legal issues have continued to mount, thanks in large part to Philadelphia Judge Genece Brinkley, who many accuse of having a vendetta against Mill so strong that she continues to go out of her way to ensure that he lands back in jail.
In a new development in his ongoing probation violation case, the Philly D.A.’s office is apparently on Mill’s side, believing that Judge Brinkley’s alleged bias has gotten so out-of-control that it’s impossible for Mill to get a new trial unless she is removed from his case.
The D.A.’s Office recently filed documents in Pennsylvania Superior Court stating that Judge Brinkley’s bias has been evident throughout the case and as a result, Mill should be retried in his probation violation case. As recently as June 2018, Judge Brinkley denied Mill’s request for a retrial.
In the recently filed court documents on the behalf of the D.A., several instances of bias were pointed out regarding Judge Brinkley, including when she made a surprise visit to the local homeless shelter where Mill was performing his court-ordered community service. The D.A. quickly pointed out that pop-up visits are not part of what judges are supposed to, it’s the job of a probation officer.
Additionally, Brinkley has also been accused of abusing her discretion in Mill’s case, specifically when she sentenced him to 2-4 years for technical violation as part of his probation. Despite all the increasing backlash that Judge Brinkley has received for her handling of Mill’s case, she continues to refuse to remove herself from his case.
The D.A. is hoping that Mill is granted another day in court courtesy of a new trial—and a new judge who doesn’t have it out for him.
