Philly D.A. Demands Meek Mill Get New Trial Judge
The District Attorney in Philly believes that Judge Genece Brinkley has been giving Meek Mill a hard time and that he deserves to get a new trial without her.
TMZ reports that the D.A.’s Office just filed new court documents in the Pennsylvania Superior Court stating that Judge Brinkley’s conduct has been biased. As we reported, Judge Brinkley sentenced Meek to serve 2 to 4 years in state prison for an old probation violation. He was finally released in April 2018.
He has asked for an appeal numerous times, but, Brinkley has shut him down and refused to give him a retrial. The D.A. points out that Brinkley has made numerous unorthodox decisions when it comes to Meek, specifically mentioning a visit she made to a homeless shelter where Meek was doing community service. As a judge that is not her responsibility, but, a probation officers.
The D.A. adds that Brinkley also “abused her discretion” when she gave Meek a 2 to 4 year sentence for “technical violations” of his probation.
The D.A. believes that Meek is not a threat to society and should have a fair chance in court without Brinkley, who refuses to remove herself from the case.
